At this time of year, Las Vegas turns into what many refer to as “hacker summer camp,” and the moniker is certainly a fitting one. The Black Hat 2019 conference, held August 3-8, is now in its 22nd year and drew over 20,000 security professionals from all across the country for technical training, presentations, briefings, networking, and more. BSides Las Vegas also held its annual conference from August 6-7, drawing a similar (and often overlapping) audience to help disseminate security knowledge throughout the industry. And of course, DEF CON 2019 took place from August 8-11, with security workshops, training sessions, and demo labs. For security professionals, it doesn’t get much better than this.
Paul Asadorian, CEO of Security Weekly, and John Strand, Founder of Black Hills Information Security, discuss the companies that Paul had briefings with this week. In the podcast (around 6:30), Paul highlights the Attivo ThreatDefend™ platform’s latest Container and Serverless deception enhancements. Additionally, they share how the deception technology space is evolving and maturing through innovative companies, like Attivo Networks.
