In August 2019, I visited Black Hat USA. Black Hat is a world-leading security conference that has been held regularly for around 25 years, focusing on security issues in IT. The 2019 Black Hat conference was held in Las Vegas, USA, bringing together IT company employees, hackers, government officials, and security companies. The Black Hat Conference is no longer just in the US. There are also exhibitions in other countries now.
Although often referred to as a hacking conference, Black Hat is more of a security show, where in addition to conferences and seminars in the Business Hall, well-known companies as well as start-ups present their IT security solutions. Publicizing security holes at the conference has a long tradition, and in the past several times companies have tried to prevent lectures.
