Fear and Coding in Las Vegas

I recently had the pleasure of acting as a Security Advisor for the BBC Click team whilst attending BlackHat, BSides LV and DEF CON in Las Vegas!


The Conferences

For 1 week a year Las Vegas becomes a pretty awesome place to be as 3 massive conferences descend on the city. At the corporate end of the spectrum we have BlackHat, billed as one of the leading information security events of the year. Next is BSides Las Vegas which is a much more community focused event aimed at education. Lastly we have DEF CON which is probably the most notorious hacker conference in the world! This year I got to attend all 3 whilst filming with the BBC for their flagship technology show, Click.


The Show

Click is the BBC's flagship technology show and you can see the first of the two Las Vegas special shows, Fear and Coding in Las Vegas, right here! This is a link to the BBC iPlayer so you will need to be in the UK to watch it but I will also update this blog and embed the YouTube video once it's put online too! You can keep an eye on the BBC Click YouTube Channel until then.



I will do a proper write-up next week once the second show and all of the short online clips are published!
