  • RSA Conference Preview: Meet Your Guide

    by Tony Kontzer on April 20, 2015

    Hello, RSA Conference attendees. We haven't met before; my name is Tony, and I'll be one of your guides throughout this week. I am one of the contributors to the RSAC editorial team, and this year, we are going to take a different approach on how we cover the conference on the blog. This is a change for me, as in the past, I attended as a member of the technology media. As a journalist, I've…

  • Breaking the Glass Firewall: The Changing Role of Women in IT Security

    by Tony Kontzer on April 20, 2015

    Despite notable progress in the acceptance and treatment of female IT security employees, the industry continues to struggle in establishing itself as a career track for women. During a panel discussion at the RSA Conference Monday, a few of the world's best-known female security executives made it clear that the challenges of yesteryear are dropping away, but that the industry still must do a…

  • Don’t Miss Peer-2-Peer Sessions at RSAC 2015

    by Fahmida Y. Rashid on April 15, 2015

    By all means, you should try to attend at least one Peer-2-Peer session while at RSA Conference this year. These sessions let you dig into a specific security topic you care about with your industry peers. It is a great opportunity to learn what other people are doing and walk away with new ideas. Wondering which conversation will be the most relevant to your job role and concerns? We asked each…

  • Securosis Guide: 2015 Endpoint Security Trends

    by Securosis Team on April 7, 2015

    This post is part of a multi-part series about the Securosis Guide to the RSA Conference (download the RSAC-G PDF). Please scroll to the bottom for links to other posts in the series. What you'll see at the RSAC in terms of endpoint security is really more of the same. Advanced attacks blah, mobile devices blah blah, AV-vendor hatred blah blah blah. Just a lot of blah... But we are still recovering…

  • Securosis Guide: Welcome to the Coverage Area Deep Dives

    by Securosis Team on April 6, 2015

    This post is part of a multi-part series about the Securosis Guide to the RSA Conference (download the RSAC-G PDF). Please scroll to the bottom for links to other posts in the series. While everyone likes to talk about the "security market" or the "security industry," in practice security is more a collection of markets, tools, and practices all competing for our time, attention, and dollars. Here…

  • Loose Lips Sink Ships, Part 2

    by Dale "Woody" Wooden on March 26, 2015

    If you read my last post, you already know our four travelers from Company X. They all used social media to discuss the trip to London they went on for the company. A hacking organization called Taking your Intellectual Property for fun (TIP4F) has been watching the information these employees shared on social media. They now plan on sending people to London to exploit Company X’s employees for…

  • Measures and Metrics in Corporate Security

    by Ben Rothke on March 18, 2015

    Two of the most famous quotes from Lord Kelvin are “to measure is to know” and “if you can not measure it, you can not improve it”. With that, in Measures and Metrics in Corporate Security, author George Campbell provides a quick and high-level introduction to the topic of metrics and measurement. Campbell is the former Chief Security Officer at Fidelity Investments, where metrics are used…

  • Smashing the Binary

    by Wendy Nather on March 16, 2015

    One big problem in security is the tendency to think in binary terms. Either you’re breached or you’re not; either you’re secure or you’re not. But this black-and-white worldview can be the cause of both technology and people problems. Is it possible to be a “little bit pwned”? Most would say no, although if you’re used to dealing with a wide spectrum of incidents within an organization, you know…

  • The Seeds of Security

    by Wendy Nather on February 12, 2015

    My colleague Garrett Bekker once described the security industry as a pomegranate. It is brilliantly accurate: from the outside it looks like one piece, but when you open up the fruit, you see hundreds of little seeds, and it all makes a big mess (and leaves stains on everything you touch). Is the industry really this bad? Yes, it is. Consider that in our 451 Research master list, we have over…
