Cyderes BlackHat Activity Guide

Welcome to the BlackHat Activity Guide

Please see below for all the details about our participation in events at and around BlackHat. BlackHat is often attended primarily by security developers and engineers, with some executives in attendance – but similar to RSA this year we expect many more executives and decision-makers than usual due to recent post-pandemic surges in activity.

GOAL: To promote awareness of Cyderes solutions, generate new leads, and engage with key clients and prospects to drive existing opportunities.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Enterprise decision-makers (VP’s or C Levels) with budget authority over security programs and architecture.

Main Conference / Tradeshow Dates: August 10th-11th

Mandalay Bay Conference Center, Las Vegas, Nevada

Key Messaging & Differentiators:

At Cyderes, entrepreneurship is in our DNA. Led by veteran cybersecurity expert and entrepreneur Robert Herjavec, we have grown across the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and beyond by expanding our service offerings and introducing emerging technologies.

Cyderes Managed Services delivers world-class security-as-a-service. We enable our customers to focus their resources on growing their business while we help address their threats in a way that’s better, faster, more cost-effective, and more scalable than in-house solutions.

The Cyderes Identity & Access Management (IAM) practice offers wide-ranging solution sets that are available both for organizations that may just be getting their identity practices in place, as well as organizations that already have an identity program established, with offerings that continue to augment as they mature their overall identity programs.

From Security Strategy to Digital Forensics & Incident Response (DFIR) and beyond, our specialized Consulting & Professional Services teams have decades of experience assessing cybersecurity postures, mitigating incidents, and guiding our enterprise clients toward solutions that strengthen their security.

We operate with speed and agility across multi-technology, complex environments. Our cyber experts support the world’s largest banks, gaming companies, and utility providers, offering customized and flexible solutions.

With decades of cybersecurity experience, our dynamic team is ushering in a specialized approach to cybersecurity that is designed to fit seamlessly within an organization’s overall structure and existing technologies.
