Forrester: Applying Our Research To Black Hat 2017


I summarized RSA 2017 in the following way: It’s a bit like the supermarket, you’ll make far healthier choices if you stick to the outer aisles. Well, Las Vegas B-Sides, Black Hat, and DefCon are taking place this week and since these events differ in tone, audience, and participants, I’ve updated my advice:

  1. We’ve gone from back office to center stage in a relatively short time frame. As you prep for great talks, reunions with colleagues, and a chance to learn a ton about various topics in our industry, remember how fortunate we are that the industry has become critical to digital business in the 21st century. It’s easy for S&R pros to default to snark – heck, it is what most of us are best at – but our industry is right in the middle of a remarkable journey!
  2. The unholy union of small & mid-size booths, boom mics, and speakers is why we can’t have nice things. Seriously conference organizers, in-booth presentations might have to go due to noise pollution. The interesting talks are happening somewhere else. In other news, this sentiment confirms I am old.
  3. It takes courage to travel the show floor without a plan. Attendees: please don’t do this. Instead, study our research to create a battle plan on what vendors to visit based on your org’s needs. Check out my miniguide below:

We are seven (gasp! Almost eight) months into 2017, and these reports continue to provide pragmatic guidance for S&R pros in what has been a tumultuous year. These reports help security leaders understand what problems they need help solving in the short and near term, and the potential severity of the outcomes if those problems go unsolved. Listen for use cases that match the content of these reports for productive conversations.
