GitHub at Black Hat USA

GitHub will be at Black Hat from August 10 - 11 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We can’t wait to see you there.

GitHub Advanced Security

Millions of developers and companies build, ship, secure, and maintain their software on GitHub—the largest and most advanced development platform in the world. GitHub Advanced Security helps teams secure their software supply chain, code, and secrets with the only community-driven, native application security testing solution in the GitHub developer workflow that your developers know and love! Instead of multiple tools causing friction in the process, GitHub Advanced Security offers targeted security context in the familiar GitHub flow to empower developers to fix vulnerabilities in minutes, not months, so that teams can innovate with peace of mind.

Check out our booth

Find us at booth #885 near the sponsored session theater in the Mandalay Convention Center for deep-dives on our technical demos, in-booth presentations, giveaways and the chance to build your own custom Octocat! Be sure to save your seat and stop by for one of several booth sessions, including:

  • Meet GitHub Security!
    Maybe you use GitHub for open-source, to AI program, as your CI system or you've just heard the name. Come meet GitHub Security and find out how to secure the code you build or pull in all within GitHub!

  • Demystifying End-to-end Supply Chain Security
    Supply chain attackers used to focus on targeting vulnerable dependencies, now they have expanded their focus to include targeting user accounts and build processes. In this talk, learn how to think about securing your end-to-end supply chain across your personal accounts, code, and build processes.

  • Ensuring safety while practicing DevOps!
    Modern products are composed of interconnected systems with millions of lines of code leveraged by users in their day-to-day lives around the globe. As such, development teams are responsible for ensuring the utmost quality and safety controls while innovating to deliver better user experiences. In this talk, learn how to implement safe checks within GitHub to enable development teams to ship compliant and secure software without sacrificing collaboration or agility.

  • Say goodbye to credential leaks
    Breaches attributable to credential misuse continue to affect all of us. While safeguarding credentials seems simple, modern software development's scale and interconnected nature make it difficult. In this talk, learn how to prevent secret leaks in your code.

  • Can crowdsourcing change your security posture?
    At GitHub, we believe that free and open security data is critical to empowering the industry as a whole to best secure the world's software. In this talk, learn how crowdsourcing security can change your response time to threats and how you can help the community with your contributions!

  • Developer Optimized Security, What is it?
    Despite integrations into the development process in recent years, most application security processes are disruptive to development, and the majority of security findings will never be fixed! In this talk, learn best practices to optimize your AppSec program to fix what you find and accelerate development work.

  • How GitHub uses GitHub
    One of the best parts about working at GitHub is using GitHub to build GitHub—and not only for software development. In this talk, learn how the GitHub Security team uses GitHub to stay secure.

  • Proactive vs. Reactive AppSec
    Most security findings are discovered after the code has been committed to your main branch. Meaning they will be part of your security tech debt that often takes months to fix. In this talk, learn how you can shift your security approach from reactive to proactive and prevent security weaknesses from ever making it into your code!
