Inside the Media Mind of Kelly Jackson Higgins: A Black Hat Deep Dive

drgraphic2If you’re in the cybersecurity industry, odds are you’ve spent some time looking into next week’s Black Hat conference. What are the must-see talks? What topics will be most prevalent throughout the week of the show? Look no further, Inside the Media Minds has you covered.

In this very special episode of the podcast, our host Christine Blake talks with Kelly Jackson Higgins, executive editor at Dark Reading. In addition to being a veteran journalist with more than 20 years of experience, Kelly also helps organize the Black Hat conference. Kelly highlights the talks she is most excited about, how Black Hat is different from other conferences, and much more.

In addition to her insights on Black Hat, Kelly also offers some information about herself that you may not find in a Google search, such as:

  • What she looks for when reading email pitches (PR people, listen carefully!)
  • Her background as a journalist (Thankfully for the world of tech reporting, she didn’t stick with covering sports)
  • What she thinks will be the biggest story by the end of 2018 (Hint: It’s election-related…)
