Of all the cybersecurity conferences that fill up our summertime schedules, Hacker Summer Camp — the weeklong series of security events in Las Vegas that includes BSides, Black Hat, and DEF CON — holds a special place in our hearts. When else do so many members of the cybersecurity community come together to share their work, their challenges, and some quality face-to-face time?

Black Hat is the centerpiece of this jam-packed lineup of cybersecurity sessions and meet-ups, both in terms of its timing at the middle of the week and the fact that it hosts the greatest number of speakers, presentations, and gatherings. There's a lot to recap each year from this one event alone, so we asked three of our Rapid7 team members who attended the event— Meaghan Donlon, Director of Product Marketing; Spencer McIntyre, Manager of Security Research; and Stephen Davis, Lead Sales Technical Advisor — to tell us about their experience. Here's a look at their highlights from Black Hat 2022.
