Acting as one of Veracode’s content producers has its perks. One of those perks is being able to attend RSA and having the privilege of sitting in as many sessions as I can fit into a day.

Yesterday was the first day of the RSA Conference, and the area around the Moscone Center was already bustling. I attended a variety of sessions, and there was one common thread among all the presentations – each and every presentation had one variation of the statement “every company is a software company”.  Even the "women in security" presentation briefly mentioned that security is a growing industry, and because every company is chasing innovation, it is a great career to get into.

I am eager to see if this trend continues throughout the week.

I’ll be blogging about throughout the week, summarizing sessions I attend and offering general observations about the conference and expo. You'll find the coverage broken out by day below:






In addition to these sessions, I also attended an Innovation Sandbox presentation by Peter Singer of New America Foundation. His presentation “NextWar: The Future of Technology and Geopolitics” was both fascinating and terrifying. I found this presentation so interesting that, rather than write about the presentation, I plan to first read the book it is based on, and then write about that more in-depth look at the topic.

For those of you who aren’t able to attend the conference this year, I hope you find this series of post informative and interesting. For those that are attending, please feel free to offer your own observations or thoughts on the sessions in the comments section below.
