Black Hat to make Middle East debut
Black Hat is a series of briefings and training that takes a vendor-neutral approach to IT security.

The Black Hat security event is to make its debut in the Middle East, with the hosting of the inaugural Black Hat Abu Dhabi in November.

The event, which is well regarded in the information security sector, will be held at the Emirates Palace from 8th to 11th November.

Black Hat Abu Dhabi will comprise training and briefings on the latest developments in cyber security, taking a vendor neutral approach. The UAE Computer Emergency Response Team (aeCERT), Khalifa University of Science and Technology and United Business Media (UBM) are responsible for bringing the event to the region.

Jeff Moss, founder and managing director of Black Hat commented: "Amid growing recognition of the need for advanced IT security we feel the best people to advise on issued faced and recommended solutions are those that know it best, by inviting industry experts to submit their ideas we can make sure that delegates are exposed to high-end technical information revealing new vulnerabilities and original content."

Pre-registration for the event is now open, and organisers have announced a Call for Papers to allow industry professionals to participate.
