DarkMatter, the international cyber security firm headquartered in the UAE, announces its significant presence at Black Hat 2017 taking place in Las Vegas, USA. Black Hat is the world’s leading information security event, providing attendees with the very latest in research, development and trends, with four days of technical trainings (22-25 July, 2017) followed by the two-day main conference (26-27 July). DarkMatter’s main aim for participation this year is to showcase its expanding portfolio of innovative cyber security products and services, which include its test and validation labs – Xen1th Labs – its expanding highly secure communications suite – KATIM – and the development of tools and services focused on securing smart city and Internet of Things environments.
The company’s proprietary Cyber Resilience Platform and Cyber Risk Scorecard will be on display during Black Hat, with the aim of communicating the importance of a holistic approach to cyber security, combining products, policies, processes, and people.
A number of DarkMatter experts will also be delivering a series of workshops at the show, sharing information on a range of topics including:
- Terrorist, Hacker, Consultant, Spy: Applying Intelligence and Counterintelligence Techniques to Cyber Network Operations;
- Malware Hunting Workshop
Earlier this year, DarkMatter articulated its Trusted Transparency Programme that constitutes a platform on which customers are able to conduct full reviews of DarkMatter’s own hardware and source code before installation. It also comprises the testing and validation of any product to identify vulnerabilities, backdoors and other security weaknesses across all areas of hardware, software, cryptography and mobile; and this call for action will be reiterated during Black Hat 2017.
