Black Hat, DefCon and B-Sides: 

A survival guide

CSO's Bill Brenner won't be making it to Las Vegas for the perfect storm of

security events scheduled for later this month. But he's been to enough Black

Hat confabs to offer these survival tips.



A talk on China's military cyber-attack capabilities has been pulled from the Black Hat security conference schedule following pressure from Taiwanese and Chinese agencies.

The talk, entitled "The Chinese Cyber Army: An Archaeological Study from 2001 to 2010," was billed as an analysis of China's government-backed hacking initiatives, based on intelligence gathered from a variety of Asian intelligence groups. The talk was to be given by Wayne Huang, chief technology officer with Taiwanese security vendor Armorize, and Jack Yu, a researcher with the company.

On Wednesday Armorize CEO Caleb Sima announced via Twitter that the talk had been pulled, saying that the "Taiwanese [government] is prohibiting it due to sensitive materials."
