Cybersecurity of Electric Vehicle Chargers

At the very simplest level we've seen card skimmers at charging stations. This event is aiming to go much deeper.

Black Hat 2019 On Your Mark, Get Set, Go

I'm not at BlackHat or DEFCON this year. If you're going, checkout the list of events...: [...] If you’ve been to a conference like this before, you already know that there will be plenty to do at night as well.

My friends for Cymmetria will be at Black Hat. Pop along to booth #264 (Shoreline, Level 2) to chat about deception.

Who is going to say "It's ok, I've got sufficient budget and resources to do everything."?...: Anticipation for the 2018 Black Hat USA Conference has become almost palpable. Tomorrow, August 4, the conference beg

I've spoken at conferences, but TBH usually because my company has paid for a slot. If you're competing for a more open slot, here's some advice from Lesley...: Ever wondered if your conference talk proposal measures up? I definitely do, every time I submit to a conference. Over the past week I reviewed over 600 call for paper submissions for the Derbycon information security conference. This was definitely a unique experience – I had participated in review boards in the
