Hackers and cybersecurity professionals are getting ready for the annual Black Hat convention in Las Vegas next week, which will have plenty for feds to learn and see about the latest intrusion techniques and how to defend against them.

The jam-packed event has at least one government-focused panel during each session, from the latest in federal cybersecurity policy to the newest tactics for attacking agencies' networks.

Federal Times will be in attendance for feds who can't make the event. For those who will be joining us there, here's a breakdown of the talks and panels that will focus on government cybersecurity:

Wednesday, Aug. 5

Thursday, Aug. 6

12:10 p.m. — Information Access and Information Sharing: Where We Are and Where We Are Going (keynote by DHS Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas)
