Create clarity from chaos


While industries are being completely reinvented at an ever-accelerating pace, the overall approach to cybersecurity has not similarly evolved to address the new security challenges presented by rapid digital transformation. 

At Black Hat, Optiv (Booth #1422) will focus on a new end-to-end cybersecurity approach that transforms the way cybersecurity is consumed and applied. Leveraging the tools that are powering digital transformation, our unique approach is aligned to new business models and centered on client-focused outcomes.

Visit us for one of our speaking sessions and we expect you’ll leave feeling more confident about how to navigate an increasingly complex cyber world and better align your cybersecurity program to business objectives.

Back with another year of soul crushing statistics, the Black Hat NOC team will be sharing all of the data that keeps us equally puzzled, and entertained, year after year. We'll let you know all the tools and techniques we're using to set up, stabilize, and secure the network, and what changes we've made over the past year to try and keep doing things better. Of course, we'll be sharing some of the more humorous network activity and what it helps us learn about the way security professionals conduct themselves on an open WiFi network. Spoiler Alert: It's poorly. We conduct ourselves poorly. More details on the Black Hat NOC can be found here.
