Black Hat USA is an annual cybersecurity event that brings together people interested in information security including executives, hackers, security professionals, and more.

The Black Hat USA organizing team had challenges to overcome. We reassured them and delivered on our promises. Total security was the highest priority and we provided them with a reassuringly strong and secure platform.

Another challenge was running various different sessions concurrently. We ran the content-focused program without a hiccup and made it easy-to-use for attendees.

High networking and attendance rates were on the top of Black Hat's list. They had 16,000 active users, a high engagement and networking rate, along with feedback about an excellent user experience — which resulted in a great success.
