I’ve been on Black Hat USA in 2015. This conference is huge.

An 8-part BlachHatEvents attendee guide from @treyford (he is on BH review board). Part 2 is on BlackHat briefings selection. Super informative.

Some quotes:

:writing_hand: get familiar with ‘Pragmatic Selection’ and “Reverse Engineering the Schedule” approaches and apply them vigorously.

:writing_hand: “be prepared it may be weeks, months or years before you completely unravel” some content.

:writing_hand: “humans are rarely great presenters.”

:writing_hand: “listen to the attendees murmur and questions.”

:writing_hand: take notes, they will help a lot during an after-event speaking.

A lot of stuff in the merchandise store at Black HAT USA 2019.

Impressions from training sessions:


Sheila A.Berta, “Backdooring Hardware Devices by Injecting Malicious Payloads on Microcontrollers

And … takeaways in a nutshell.
