Illumio is in Las Vegas for Black Hat 2022

Candice Nepomuceno, Senior Global Event Management & Strategy Manager

Welcome back to Vegas!

We are once again in Las Vegas for Black Hat 2022!

Although in-person events slowly started making a comeback toward the end of 2021, in-person events in the cybersecurity space started (literally) opening their doors WIDE OPEN earlier this year in San Francisco at RSAC.

If you were not at RSAC, some of your team may have been on the other side of the coast at Gartner Risk & Security Management Summit in National Harbor, MD. Some of you may have also recently attended AWS re:Inforce in Boston in July.

Visit Illumio at Booth #984 or on the Virtual Platform

Now we get to travel to the beloved desert haven: Las Vegas!

This year’s conference will be held at Mandalay Bay beginning Saturday, August 6th through Thursday, August 11th.

Unless you want to brush up on your hacking skills so you can become the next Inventing Anna, you only need to book your time in Vegas Wednesday, August 10th and Thursday, August 11th when the Business Hall and Briefing Sessions will take place.

More importantly, that is when Illumio will be on-site in Booth #984.

Additionally, from Saturday, August 6th through Tuesday, August 9th, Black Hat will also be conducting training courses on-site.    

Can't make it in-person this year? Good news! Black Hat will still offer all of the conference components virtually this year, so you have two opportunities to engage. You can still stay connected and access the Virtual Platform.  

Explore Illumio's offerings at Black Hat 2022

Black Hat, both in-person and virtual, will offer attendees the opportunity to view sessions, visit sponsor booths, interact with other attendees, attend trainings and request meetings.

What’s Illumio’s stake in the game this year? Well, thank you for asking!

  • Illumio is a Silver Plus Sponsor and will run live demos showcasing why we are the leader in Zero Trust Segmentation.
  • We will host a couple of Q&A sessions with Rob Ragan, Principal Researcher at Bishop Fox, co-host partner happy hours and dinners.
  • Our very own Paul Dant, Senior Director, Cybersecurity Strategy, will lead a live 20-minute session, Anatomy of a Disaster: Why are we still losing? in the Innovation Theater. Or you can watch the 15-minute on-demand version.
  • In addition to all this IRL excitement, we will also have a virtual booth where you can chat with our staff, request meetings, and download Illumio content.
  • At both our virtual and in-person booths, you can take the Zero Trust Impact Assessment. The assessment will allow you to discover how your organization’s Zero Trust initiatives stack up to potential cyberattacks.

Win Bose headphones or a Meta Quest 2 VR headset

Like to win things? That’s great!

If you take the Zero Trust Impact Assessment either at Illumio’s booth or virtually, you will be entered to win a pair of Bose noise-canceling headphones. 

If you miss out on winning the headphones, you can also be entered to win a Meta Quest 2 VR headset.
