  • Taking the Torch

    by Britta Glade on April 28, 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.

  • Passing the torch!

    by Jeanne Friedman on April 23, 2014

    After 7 years it is time for me to move on and explore new directions. I have seen the Conference grow so much over these years in the number of attendees, speakers, tracks, sessions, types of content and more.
