This year's Black Hat conference will be a hybrid event, with both in-person and virtual components! Duo will be participating virtually, so whether you are attending live or online, join us for a few days of:

  • Engaging talks by security experts, including Cisco Secure CISO Josh Yavor, Duo Head of Advisory CISOs Wendy Nather, and Talos Intelligence Director Matt Olney
  • Insight into topics such as passwordless authentication, balancing productivity and security, building a world-class incident response team, and more
  • Networking with your peers to discuss lessons learned and the latest security and technology trends

Black Hat 2021 is back, and happening both in-person and virtually this year! Starting with a few days of training on Saturday, July 31 and ending with briefings on Thursday, August 5, Black Hat will be chock full of informative keynote talks, engaging sponsored sessions, friendly Business Hall exhibits, and more.

What does this mean for Duo? You bet your USB sticks we’ll be joining the fun, but we'll be participating purely online this year.
