Swimming Upstream at Black Hat

Recently I was one of the many tens of thousands of attendees converging on Las Vegas at Black Hat, the massive annual cyber security conference.  One morning of the event I found myself walking down a long venue hallway while thousands, and this is no exaggeration, I mean thousands of attendees were walking the opposite direction.  

The whole corridor was filled with people heading to the expo floor to see the new cyber security technologies on display and learn how AI, machine learning, magical mystery boxes, and other toys would help them finally secure their network.
