  • RSA Conference 2019: A Recap

    RSA is pretty amazing! I’ve been to a lot of security and tech conferences over the years, but somehow always missed the train to RSA. The show is absolutely massive, and involves an entire week of tradeoffs for an attendee – do you walk the expo hall for hours on end? Meet with customers? New prospects? Attend the sessions? Analysts? Write content? Promote on social media? Network with new… READ MORE

  • Live From RSA: Diversity and Inclusion

    At one of the keynote addresses at RSA, the opening speaker asked that everyone who identifies as a woman in the audience stand up.

  • Live from RSA: Sophia the Social Humanoid Robot

    A big theme throughout RSA this year, from the keynote to vendor booths, is the power that artificial intelligence can bring to the security world.

We invited Sophia, the world’s first social humanoid robot, to be a… READ MORE

  • Live From RSA: Coolest Things to See on the Expo Floor

    The RSA expo hall is massive. Even the word “massive” doesn’t seem to do justice to just how big the floor is and how many vendors are present. Putting it in better context, it took me an entire hour to walk by every booth at a moderate pace, and that is without stopping for conversations or getting my badge scanned. For the first night, I wanted to see everything, and make some mental notes on… READ MORE

  • Live From RSA: Opening Keynote Inspires

    The keynote presentation this year at RSA carried three major themes: Better Together, Trust, and Artificial Intelligence. Better Together We were treated with a surprise keynote opening by Dame Helen Mirren, who gave an inspirational speech on the influence that every security practitioner in the room has on the security of our world.
