ExtraHop will be back in Las Vegas for this year’s Black Hat Conference, and we’ve got all kinds of tricks up our sleeves. Want to find out what’s in the black box? Come say hello at booth #1540 in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, or schedule a meeting here. We have a lot planned for next week. Read on for a sneak peek. We hope to see you there!

Unlock the Box Challenge

Stop by our booth for this 15-minute threat hunting challenge based on real data from real attacks. Leverage the winning combination of ExtraHop Reveal(x) and CrowdStrike Falcon® to stop a Kerberos golden ticket attack. Each task you complete earns you points toward winning an Xbox Series X. Can you beat the clock and stop the attack?

The Law vs. Ch@os 

In 1999, ExtraHop Chief Information Security and Risk Officer Mark Bowling was working as an FBI agent and investigating a series of physical attacks on a Wisconsin energy company's electrical power distribution centers. As his investigation unfolded, Bowling discovered that the person responsible for the attacks – who went by "Dr. Ch@os" (née Joseph Konopka) – was ultimately connected to a total of 86 acts of vandalism and arson in Wisconsin, 20 of which qualified as terrorist acts, in addition to a variety of cybercrimes, including hacking, cyber sabotage, intellectual property theft, and selling counterfeit software.

In this fast-paced presentation, Bowling will reprise his role as an FBI agent, while ExtraHop Technical Marketing Director Jamie Moles recalls his roots in hacking. They'll take you through the Konopka case to demonstrate the role that intelligence, digital forensics, and interrogations played in helping law enforcement find Konopka before he could carry out a potentially deadly chemical attack on the Chicago subway.
