  • When Culture and Security Collide

    by Alex Bender on July 7, 2014

    I talked about Security Protocols before it was cool: What happens when culture and security collide? On March 10, 2014, attendees of the music, film and interactive conference and festival South by Southwest (SXSW) crammed into two overflowing rooms for what many would later claim to be the most talked about event of the show. Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden addressed the SXSW audience via…

  • A Tale of Two Cultures: Cool or Vigilant. Can the Security Industry Have Both?

    by Alex Bender on June 6, 2014

    We live in an age when a company’s “cool corporate culture” can actually come to influence them as a brand. Multi-billion dollar company Google offers an open, startup-like culture with an office layout that encourages spontaneous interactions.

  • Reflecting Back on RSA Conference Content and Looking Forward to its Bright Future

    by Alex Bender on April 25, 2014

    In 2014, over 500 staffers worked tirelessly to make RSA Conference a success. From building the expo hall to registering more than 28,500 attendees, the Conference is the culmination of months of planning, collaboration and teamwork.

    Despite having very long days and trying to absorb hours upon hours of information, I continue to be amazed by the energy and excitement our attendees bring to Moscone each day. You have treated each day as if we were kicking off a brand new conference – and we appreciate it!
