  • Securosis Guide: Escape from Cloud City

    by Securosis Team on February 11, 2016

    Cloud computing has been a pretty steady theme in both this RSAC Guide and the conference itself. Heck, it was our very first theme in our very first Guide back in 2010, and has shown up as a theme every year since. As much as we'd love to move past it to something "new" we strongly suspect you will see more cloud, not less, this year. Besides, while we eagerly anticipate the impending emergence…

  • Protecting Against the Top Mobile Security Threats in 2016

    by Alisdair Faulkner on February 10, 2016

    By the end of 2016 there will be an estimated 6.4 billion connected devices—a 30 percent increase over 2015—as mobile continues to become the channel-of-choice for everything from online banking to e-commerce. This mobile proliferation is attracting cybercriminals too, and they use stolen identities and compromised devices from major data breaches for advantageous financial gain. Given the…

  • Securosis Guide: Threat Intelligence & Bothan Spies

    by Securosis Team on February 5, 2016

    Every year we look at different aspects of the security space and the approaching storm that is RSA. One of the overarching themes we have driven ourselves into a frenzy over is the need for threat intelligence. On the analyst side, we are constantly taking briefings from new threat intel vendors claiming to be the next big thing, but we really cannot tell the difference between them. We even…

  • Expanding the Reach of RSA Conference

    by Sandra Toms on February 2, 2016

    Many of you have been asking the question: why is the cast of CSI Cyber taking the stage this year? Why are they keynoting over someone more ingrained in the industry? As we celebrate our 25-year anniversary, the melding of cybersecurity and pop culture has never been more prevalent. Movies, television and books focus on online activity ranging from credit theft to cyber espionage, and few things…

    by Wade Baker on February 1, 2016

    Welcome to the second post in a series exploring the evolution of the information security industry through the lens of RSA Conference sessions. The first one’s here if you missed it and need some background on what this is all about. Today I’m going to present sundry views into words that have made it to the “top” in some way or another. I put “top” in quotes here because not all these words will…

  • The Evolution of InfoSec Through 25 Years of RSA Conference Sessions, Part 1: From Crypto to Cyber

    by Wade Baker on January 27, 2016

    This is the first in a series. You can read the second and third parts here. Last May, I wrote a blog post in response to my daughter’s question “what’s the RSA Conference about, Daddy?” Being a data-driven guy, I wanted to give her an answer that used a quantitative approach, but also captured qualitative aspects of the event as well. I was able to obtain session titles from the RSAC website for…

  • 2016 Is the Year of Developer-Driven Security

    by Chenxi Wang on January 26, 2016

    In the past 10 years or so, the security industry has gone through a number of paradigm changes, most of which were propelled by fundamental shifts in infrastructure or application-related technologies—think cloud or mobile. One such shift that is rapidly changing the way companies are approaching security involves the increasing power of developers and how application infrastructure is being…
