    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on June 9, 2015

We are having year-round conversations through blog posts and webcasts. With RSAC Unplugged, we put 120 people in one room with excellent speakers and waited to see what would happen. We took away the exhibit hall and the sales pitches, consolidated all the tracks into…

  • Security by the Numbers and the Work Ahead

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on June 2, 2015

    Every day, there is yet another survey or report highlighting people’s perceptions of information security and identifying issues that need attention.

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on May 18, 2015

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on April 24, 2015

    Dr. Hugh Thompson, the program committee chairman of RSA Conference, closed out the RSA Conference week with the amusing and informational “Hugh Thompson and Guests.” How many of us will ever be able to look at a horse and carriage again without remembering his retelling of his family's runaway carriage ride?

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on April 23, 2015

    RSA Conference goes the full week, with the closing keynote on Friday, but for many people, today is the de facto last day.

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on April 22, 2015

    Day 3. Wednesday. Hump day! We are midway through RSA Conference, and there is still so much left to do.

Hope everyone has been eating healthy and drinking. We are exercising both our minds and bodies this week. Every day, sessions are…

  • RSAC 2015 Links Roundup: What to Watch

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on April 20, 2015

    RSA Conference is huge. There is no other way to describe it. The problem with the size is that it’s impossible to catch everything at the show. The thing is, there is no reason why you should.
