Following a successful hybrid event in 2021 that saw more than 6,000 in-person, and more than 14,500 virtual attendees, Black Hat USA returns in 2022 to the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now in its 25th year, this year’s event has three key components, each equally unmissable, namely these are Trainings, Briefings, and The Business Hall.

Black Hat USA 2022 will open with four days of Trainings on the 6th of August, and will be followed by the two-day main conference taking place on August 10th and 11th. The main conference highlights are the Black Hat Briefings and the Black Hat Business Hall. The former is where industry experts are provided with a platform to share ground-breaking work and ideas, while the latter provides the unique opportunity of networking with thousands of InfoSec professionals.

The Black Hat Trainings is a hybrid event comprising a mix of two and four-day courses and takes place from the 6th through the 9th of August, virtually, and in-person. The event offers attendees technical courses covering offensive proactive cybersecurity approaches, defensive reactive approaches, and general approaches that utilize elements of both.

A good example of an offensive course in cloud security, for example, is the 2-day virtual Hacking Cloud Infrastructure course, while an example of a defensive course would be the in-person Cloud Security Hands-On (CCSK+) For Azure. Regardless of whether the course is conducted in-person or remotely, what sets the Black Hat Trainings apart are the bespoke nature of its courses. The Training session courses often take a very hands-on, interactive approach where skilled trainers provide ongoing assessment through incremental challenges concentrated on practical real-world applications.
