LAS VEGAS — An annual gathering of security experts from government and corporations, independent researchers and master hackers will take place in Las Vegas this weekend, as the Black Hat Briefings U.S.A. are held July 28-30 at Caesar’s Palace.

The show includes seminars presented by security industry leaders and experts from around the globe, representing many sectors of the corporate sphere as well as government agencies.

Black Hat training coincides with the seminars and offers an opportunity for attendees to have hands-on experience with the latest security threats and counter-measures. Various special events and parties also allow networking access for show participants.

The packed schedule of seminars includes many topics, covering the spectrum of online security concerns.

Subjects to be discussed include “The Status of Cellphone Malware in 2007” presented by F-Secure’s Chief Research Officer Mikko Hyppenen, “Disclosure and Intellectual Property Law: Case Studies” given by The Center for Internet and Society’s Executive Director Jennifer Granick, and “Tor and Blocking-Resistance” by security and privacy researcher Roger Dingledine.

Black Hat was founded in 1997 with the goal of providing education for corporate and governmental agencies. By introducing professional experts to the leading figures of the online underground, founder Jeff Moss has expanded Black Hat Briefings to seminars in Washington, Japan and Europe.

Following his employment at various computing security firms worldwide, Moss founded DEFCON, which claims to be the world’s largest organization of computer hackers.

Sponsors for the Las Vegas show include Red Lambda, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Cenzic Security Applications, Core Security Technologies, Norman, Configuresoft, IOActive and Qualys, among others.
