After 6 days of intensive infosec imbibement, Black Hat USA 2017 – and thus our time in Vegas – has come to an end. For those in attendance, the week went by in a flash – not surprising really, as each day was packed with briefings to attend, demos to watch, tools to try, and of course, swag to collect.
It has been an amazing first day at the Black Hat USA main conference. As expected, thousands upon thousands of security professionals arrived at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center to witness the infosec spectacle that is Black Hat.
Before closing the evening, let’s take a quick look back at what happened at Briefings Day 1.
Two decades on from its inception, one of the biggest security events in the world – Black Hat USA – has again kicked off in Vegas for a week of unbridled infosec indulgence, and we’re psyched to take part in the festivities.
We’re excited to tell all of you that we made it to the 26th spot in the Top 100 Information Security Blogs!

In May 2017, we launched the third edition of our MISSIONS. With the stakes so high, and with one of the biggest security events calling, enrollments (and thus, entries) came pouring in from the very first week. Now, two months and hundreds of entries later, the time has come to find out who among you will be headed to the Sin City for the ultimate infosec experience.
