Since many OODA Network Members attend Blackhat each year, OODA will be hosting a member only happy hour during the event so we can catch up in person. This should be a good way to connect with old friends and meet others in the network you have yet to meet in person.
Three of our team plan on being at Backhat. Matt Devost has attended Backhat every year since they began, helping to shape the agenda and working as part of the review board. Bob Gourley is attending for the first time. Mike Tanji, author of helpful business-focused books like “The First Cybersecurity Book Your Company Will Ever Need” and “Working in Cybersecurity” and creator of OODA’s Cyber Threat Analysis Report will also be there.
We will be providing details to our members on our happy hour shortly.
One of the benefits we will be providing our members is our assessment of the most interesting businesses and technology seen on the Blackhat expo floor. Established security firms continue to innovate, and new ones with emerging technology are also critically important to evaluate and assess. We would love to hear from our members on this topic before the event. Do you know of a company or technology you would like us to evaluate while at the event? Please let us know.
