Hanging out with us in the speaker lounge today and tomorrow are nearly 150 attendees from across the security ecosystem. Attendees span the industry, from those in the security researcher communities at large to our friends in government, security protection partner groups, and security response teams. It’s amazing to have such a diverse group of people here for two-way conversations with our engineers. It’s those talks, as well as the countless side meetings, community mixer events, and “hallway tracks” that make BlueHat successful. The interactions between our internal and external audiences always leave us more excited and committed as we all work toward building a more secure planet through shared ideals.
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited by Cisco to keynote their very first BlueHat-esque type of conference, which aims to improve their own security posture by bringing in key researchers who can share their findings with Cisco security professionals. It’s encouraging to see our peers and partners continuing the formula that has been so successful for us at Microsoft and inviting us to be a part of it. When Chris Hoff from Cisco gave a talk at BlueHat v9, it was one of the most highly rated talks on the cloud that our conference had ever seen. Sharing our platforms for these types of win-win outcomes makes it all worth it.
Okay, I need to go grab the mic and step back into my MC duties…until next time.
