Super serious analysis

A Note on Data Collection

Vendors were retrieved from the Black Hat 2018 Business Hall Floorplan, and exclude any Federal agencies, educational organizations, or nonprofits. I also excluded any companies in the Career Zone, as they are aiming to recruit security talent rather than sell products or services (for example, I presume Major League Baseball is not selling the latest Threat Intelligence Automation on the Blockchain.)
