To commemorate the 15th anniversary of the annual Black Hat USA information security conference being held in Las Vegas this week, organizers are bringing back five speakers from the original 1998 event.
According to a statement released by Black Hat organizers last week, JJeff Moss, Bruce Schneier, Marcus Ranum, Adam Shostack and Jennifer Granick—each of whom spoke at the first Black Hat conference—will appear together on a panel titled "Smashing the Future for Fun and Profit" on Wednesday. The five will share their vision of security for the next 15 years in the first Black Hat "futurist panel," according to the statement.
"Bringing back these renowned experts is our way to celebrate the security community's past, present and future," said Black Hat General Manager Trey Ford.
The futurist panel is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. local time at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. More information on the panel can be found on the Black Hat website.
The Black Hat conference is produced by UBM TechWeb, owned by UBM plc, the same company that owns and publishes EE Times.
