RSA Security

  • 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.

    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…

    by Britta Glade on April 28, 2014

    I’ve lived my life with a few core drivers – drivers instilled in me by my parents that I try to pass on to my children: shoot for the stars by exercising and challenging your brain, pursue a career that you will enjoy, and make a positive impact in the world. The intersection of these three drivers is narrow and aspirational, I know, but the underlying guidance has always been clear: you can—and…
