Our GuidePoint Security team members will be in Las Vegas the first week of August for all three major information security conferences — Black Hat, BSidesLV, and Def Con.

Black Hat

On Tuesday, Aug. 2, GuidePoint Security, together with our participating vendors, CrowdStrike, Prelert, RSA, and Skybox, will host a Black Hat Social Hour. It will be from 5:30-8 p.m. in the Rí Rá Irish Pub at The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay Place. Join us for lively conversation, great entertainment, and libations. RSVP here.

A little bit about our vendors who are co-sponsoring our Black Hat Security Social Hour:

  • CrowdStrike: CrowdStrike™ is a leading provider of next-generation endpoint protection, threat intelligence, and pre- and post-incident response services. Through CrowdStrike-as-a-Service, clients have access to a highly scalable subscription-based business model to multiply security teams’ effectiveness and expertise, including 24/7 endpoint visibility, monitoring, and response.
  • Prelert is the leading provider of behavioral analytics for IT security, IT operations, and business operations teams. By analyzing an organization’s log data, Prelert finds anomalies, links them together and lets the data tell the story behind advanced security threats, IT performance problems, and business disruptions.
  • RSA provides more than 30,000 customers worldwide with essential security capabilities to protect valuable assets from cyber threats. With RSA’s award-winning products, organizations can effectively detect, investigate, and respond to advanced attacks; confirm and manage identities; and ultimately, reduce IP theft, fraud, and cybercrime.
  • Skybox Security meets clients’ network vulnerability and threat management needs. With the help of Skybox’s predictive analytics, enterprises can monitor and protect their networks in a timely manner. They can also eliminate attack vectors, manage firewalls, and stay ahead of threats using one platform without ever disrupting normal network operations.


Beginning at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, you’ll find us as a sponsor of the 2016 BSidesLV Hire Ground, a two-day event focusing on topics ranging from job networking to mock interviews and resumes. Look for us in the Recruitment/Mentorship area. We’ll be there through 7 p.m. Tuesday, and then back again from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3.

We’re also planning a special career development talk at BSidesLV at 2 p.m. Wednesday, so be sure to stop by the Recruitment/Mentorship area and network with us.
