The Host Unknown Vegas Party

Host Unknown sole founder Javvad Malik was accompanied by fellow sole founder Thom Langford in Las Vegas for what many affectionately refer to as ‘hacker summer camp’ which consists of three major events, Bsides LV, Blackhat, and DefCon.

We were proud to be a super donor for BSidesLV – and are glad that our credit card company hasn’t sent bailiffs around to confiscate office equipment yet.

But in order to really make it in Vegas, you have to really stand out and do something spectacular. And while other vendors are usually in the business of throwing lavish parties in loud environments filled with liquor. Host Unknown knows that the best party is one where you can have a conversation, and invite only people who work for vendors, or have a corporate card and then thank them publicly for being a generous sponsor.

We must admit, it was probably the best party in town,

“The Host Unknown party was the best party in town” – Javvad Malik

This comment was reiterated by another random person we asked.

“I concur with this gentleman, this was by far the best party in town” – Thom Langford

After all that partying, you’d imagine Host Unknown would be running on empty. But no, these sole founders are deceptively resilient. Jayson Street made a point to find them at DefCon and requested an awkward hug.

Finally, before departing, the gents got a taste of some good old American Freedom!

Stay tuned for more awesome Unknown Parties coming to a security event to you soon. Time and venues are kept secret till last minute to keep numbers down, so prepare for disappointment if you can’t make it, and even more disappointment if you do make it.
