What else? Mandiant Founder Kevin Mandia is going to present on how to survive the grind of ongoing incidents without losing your sanity or your budget. Renowned security researcher Joanna Rutkowska, for her part, is presenting on "Beyond the CPU: Defeating Hardware Based RAM Acquisition Tools.""Bypassing NAC," presented by Ofir Arkin, CTO of Insightix, is a must-attend to my mind, given the continuing question of the flawed security of NACs (network access controls). Arkin promises to present flaws associated with each and every NAC solution presented. "These flaws allow the complete bypass of each and every network access control mechanism currently offered on the market," his session description reads. Stay tuned: The conference runs Wednesday and Thursday, and well be there reporting on as much of this as we can cram in. See something on the schedule you think is a must-attend?

Rutkowska last year became the Black Hat lightning rod when she demonstrated a prototype of the Blue Pillan example of "Stealth by Design" malware that uses virutalization/hypervisor techniques to take over a system without leaving any trail whatsoeveri.e., undetectable malware. This Black Hat star will be a big draw for sure.
