Black Hat Federal 2006
Crystal City, VA

The Black Hat Briefings were created to fill the need for computer security professionals to better understand the security risks to information infrastructures and computer systems. Black Hat accomplishes this by assembling a group of vendor-neutral security professionals and having them speak candidly about the problems businesses face and the solutions to those problems. No gimmicks—just straight talk by people who make it their business to know the information security space. CSIA is sponsoring Black Hat Federal this year.
