  • Get Ready for RSA Conference 2016 Call for Speakers

    by Britta Glade on July 2, 2015

    RSA Conference moves back to its “traditional” timing next year, taking place Feb. 29-Mar. 4 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. Quite naturally, that means Call for Speakers is back in the summer: watch for it to open July 15 and close on August 13. This is an incredibly busy time of year for many of you (who said anything about a vacation!?), so hopefully a heads up on this window of time…

  • Regionally Focused Security Lessons on Tap at RSA Conference APJ

    by Britta Glade on June 3, 2015

    The full agenda for RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2015 will soon be posted, featuring many top-rated speakers from across the globe delivering powerful presentations. The Program Committee had its hands full this year as it sorted through a record number of submissions, tasked with selecting those that provided the most timely, compelling content for our attendees—content that would really…

  • Congrats to Everyone in Our First #RSAC Crowdsource Program, We Learned a Lot

    by Britta Glade on April 7, 2015

    The wait is over. We now have a slate of crowdsource sessions. Congratulations to everyone who participated in this inaugural program. We experimented with a new way of selecting educational sessions. We took a risk, and it was an exciting roller coaster ride. With a diverse—and vocal!—Program Committee by my side, we approached this experiment with the following tenets: Provide a lighter weight…

  • Dig Deep into Security Topics With RSAC 2015 Learning Labs

    by Britta Glade on April 1, 2015

    At RSA Conference, we are hyper-focused on our attendees’ experience. What works for them? What doesn’t work for them? What do they want more of—or less? We scrutinize the feedback from our attendees and challenge ourselves to make every RSA Conference experience energizing, empowering, and enjoyable. From an education content standpoint, I listened and learned a lot from our delegates this year…

    by Britta Glade on January 20, 2015

    We are very excited to introduce Crowdsourced Submissions at RSA® Conference 2015! This is an opportunity for the public to vote on sessions of interest. We know you have great ideas and terrific conversation topics—the quality and quantity of submissions for the traditional tracks was at an all time high this year—so here’s your chance to still be part of the RSA Conference program. Submissions…

  • RSAC Speaker Submissions Reveal What the Industry Cares About

    by Britta Glade on December 10, 2014

    Predictions are dangerous business. Just ask Thomas Watson, who in 1943 as chairman of IBM said, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." Wilbur Wright got it right, confessing in 1908: "In 1901, I said to my brother Orville that man would not fly for fifty years . . . Ever since, I have distrusted myself and avoided all predictions." As Mr. Wright’s wingman and an observer—not…

  • Mythbusters: RSAC Edition Part 2

    by Britta Glade on September 17, 2014

    In our last post we looked at RSA Conference myths that typically get associated with our call for submissions process. Here are a few more bubbles we’re more than happy to burst! Myth: RSAC Covers the Same Topics Every Year; Topics are Never Technical in Nature Although RSA Conference focuses primarily on the business of security, we do have technical tracks at our events. Our goal is to help our…

  • Mythbusters: RSAC Edition Part 1

    by Britta Glade on September 10, 2014

    The only thing people like more than a myth is separating fact from fiction. We all know some of the more famous myths: the explosive combination of soda and Pop Rocks candy will kill you, alligators roam the sewers of New York City and Walt Disney had himself cryogenically frozen. That said, you don’t have to be Jamie Hynemen or Adam Savage to bust the myths surrounding RSA Conference’s Call for…

  • The Journey of an RSA Conference Speaking Submission

    by Britta Glade on August 20, 2014

    When thinking about the process for RSA Conference speaking proposals, I remembered School House Rock’s “I’m Just a Bill.” You know the one—“Bill,” a cute rolled-up piece of paper is sitting on the steps of Capitol Hill. He teaches the curious kid about the process, the waits, the analysis, and the debates that take place as part of his journey to becoming a law. For those “curious kids on the…

  • Dog Days of Summer Breed Innovative Speaking Submissions: Call for Speakers to Open Early September

    by Britta Glade on June 17, 2014

    Quick—I say summer, you say…..? Vacation? Beach? Relaxation? RSA Conference speaking submission? I’m pretty sure those are the first four thoughts that popped into your head, though perhaps not in that order. As you are hopefully well aware, RSA Conference will be held April 20-24 next year. This brings with it the promise of better weather as well as more time to prepare your speaking…
