Winner of Free Ticket to Black Hat USA 2014 Briefings

Black Hat USA 2014 Logo

We have a Winnah!!

Each year, EH-Net partners with Black Hat Events as a media sponsor. As part of that package we obtain an extra ticket to the Briefings portion of Black Hat USA 2014 with the specific intent on giving it to one of our top contributors. This year is no different on our end, although the Vegas side of things will be quite different this year. Although BH has called Caesars Palace it’s home for over a decade, the 2014 event has moved to the Mandalay Bay. But what hasn’t changed is the fact that this is the place to be for hackers. With the combination of Black Hat (Aug 2 – 7) and DEF CON (Aug 7 – 10) leading the way, and other smaller events in the Vegas area also running at the same time, this is the one week of the year like no other. For more information, please visit the Black Hat USA 2014 listing on the EH-Net Global Calendar of Events.

So whether you had no plans on going at all this year or already have plans to be in Vegas for that week anyway, EH-Net offered a chance to join what is known as “the show that sets the benchmark for all other security conferences.” As Black Hat returns for its 17th year, EH-Net member azmatt will join the brightest in the world for six days of learning, networking, and skill building. Congratulations on winning the Free Ticket to Black Hat USA 2014 Briefings Aug 6 – 7 worth $2200. Didn’t win? Don’t worry. Regulars and even casual readers of EH-Net can still benefit as the $100 discount by using coupon code TDCCbr100off is still available.
