Picks for Black Hat 2009

If you been following the black hat course training and speaker page then you probably have realilzed that there has been a large number of changes. From selecting speakers in a delayed two group selection to canceling a large number of training classes, I can only presume the economy and limited budgets have been at play.

None-the-less, here are some talks that look interesting and I'd recommend you check out.
