The Black Hat Conference has been going on for years. For me, I’ve always said I would like to get there some day. Instead, I’ve always opted for making it to the RSA conference because the companies I’ve worked for were willing to send me to one or the other each year.
I used to believe the Black Hat conference was on the forbidden list for those of us certified with CISSP. Maybe this was true. I did a quick scan of the ethics policy on www.isc2.org web.
