3 Things To Look For At RSA 2012 In San Francisco

Post by Peter McCalister February 27, 2012

Yep, It’s that time of year again when everyone interested in protecting their IT assets across physical, virtual and cloud environments converge on Mascone Center in San Francisco for the annual RSA conference.

Expect over 350 vendors/sponsors and 16,500 other attendees clamoring for 220+ sessions. The theme this year is “The great cipher mightier than the sword” and according to the website “Protecting yourself and your company against cyber attacks and those who launch them is a full-time job. You need up-to-the-minute information, the latest technology, insight into techniques and trends, and so much more.”

As you put together your plans for attacking the exhibit hall and incredible sessions make sure you look for the following 3 things:

Keynotes: I’m a huge fan of the keynotes and suggest you don’t miss a single one. Starting off with Art Coviello, Jr., EVP, EMC Corporation, Executive Chairman, RSA, The Security Division of EMC through to Tony Blair, Former Prime Minister, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, I expect all 15 keynotes to be insightful, educational and enlightening.

Sessions: I’m a bit biased to sessions that separate the outsider from insider threats facing your organization. Too much time can be spent worrying about the hacker trying to get in when the most expensive and biggest threat is actually when “Good People Do Bad Things”.

Vendor exhibits: The expo floor is always a crazy place with every vendor vying for your attention deploying every technique from models to magicians, and motorcycle to iPad giveaways. Just go straight to booth 545 and let BeyondTrust show you how to protect your organization from the intentional, accidental and indirect misuse of privilege of your very own employees. We will have some great new announcements tomorrow so stay tuned.
See you at RSA!
