    Once the Black Hat Briefings come to an end, some UAT student volunteers will report as workers at DEF CON! Because both security conferences fall on the same week, in the same city, many people attend both Black Hat and DEF CON. UAT has a large presence at DEF CON with a huge booth located at Caesar’s Palace where attendees can learn more about cyber security, our bachelor and master’s degrees and check out some cool, nerd swag. DEF CON is more edgy than Black Hat, as it was created in 1993 by a core hacker group who wanted to…
