LAS VEGAS -- This year's Black Hat was attended by nearly 7,500 people, according to Trey Ford, Black Hat's general manager.

"We get a pretty good representation from around the world, and every year we review where government representatives are coming from," Ford said. "Ignoring the U.S. and Canada, coming in at No. 10 was Denmark with 33 people; Norway: 38; Singapore: 43; followed by Brazil, Republic of Korea, and Germany: 73; Israel: 75, Australia: 76; Japan came in at No. 2; and Sweden is No. 1, with 91 people. It's interesting to see who's interested in security."

Overall, Black Hat 2013 attendance was up by 8% compared with last year's event. Ninety-eight new tools were introduced, and the event offered 11 content tracks of (up from nine last year).
