In the first week of August 2020, as I prepped my kids for the start of virtual 7th and 12th grade the following week, I attended my first full virtual conference. Black Hat 2020 turned hard left once it was clear that large live events wouldn’t be happening in the second half of 2020, and what they managed to pull off was nothing short of a miracle. Even if, from an analyst’s perspective, the event was nothing like an in-person event, by all accounts it was incredibly useful for all involved.
