Black Hats

5:15 PM -- CMP, Light Reading's carousing, go-for-broke parent, has acquired Black Hat Inc., a producer of information security conferences and training that includes Black Hat Briefings and Conferences. Yes, that Black Hat.

From the corporate PR pile:

Jeff Moss, founder and owner, will continue to run Black Hat and will join CMP Media as Director of Black Hat...

"Black Hat has been one of the most successful conferences in computer security, with incredible growth over the past five years," said Chris Keating, vice president of CMP's security media group.

Corporate has also notified us that there will be no changes in the dress code following the acquisition.
