I would say someone is getting ready to go to Vegas for Black Hat and DEF CON. Many of you may be rolling your eyes at the thought of another “Safety First” blog. But we in education understand that repetition is the name of the game. So whether you are a seasoned pro or a newcomer to these events, please take a moment to make sure you don’t end up on the Wall of Sheep.
Black Hat and DEF CON are where the security professionals (née hackers) come to play. You are guaranteed to see some amazing exploits both technical and human. There will also be a population of people who come and do things because they can, not because they should.
