What to Expect at RSAC 2022: By the Numbers


Posted on by Kacy Zurkus

Our team is overflowing with excitement in anticipation of RSA Conference 2022 June 6-9. For many attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff, this event could likely be the first large-scale physical conference they have attended in nearly two years. That’s both exhilarating and a little trying all at once. Between planning the sessions you want to attend, deciding where to go on the Expo floor, booking hotels, and arranging meetings, your time will book up fast.

To help you manage your expectations and any scheduling questions you might have, we wanted to share the numbers with you. Yes, even though numbers are not words, they do tell a story, and the tale of RSAC 2022 is rich with opportunities for all of us to TRANSFORM. We’ll start with a look at who will be there as speakers, exhibitors, and attendees.

Keynotes

To say that we have more than 25 keynote sessions is indeed a thrill, but more importantly, we have incredible individuals–from revolutionary thinkers to industry influencers, social influencers, musicians, and athletes. Dr. Merryl Goldberg will share her gripping experience of helping people defect from the Soviet Union by encrypting musical notes. Paralympic gold-medalist, Jessica Long, will impart her learned wisdom on the power of positivity, and we’ll even have a bit of theater as a current CISO, board members, and former top federal cyber officials “role play” a board of directors meeting. As always, it’s best to arrive early for the keynotes.

Sessions

But that’s not all! In addition to the dozens of other keynotes, we will also have more than 350 traditional and interactive sessions covering 25 different topics and tracks from Cloud Security & Cloud Security Operations to Identity, Privacy, Zero Trust, and RSAC Sandbox. Want more numbers? We’ll have 36 Birds of a Feather sessions, 20 Learning Labs, and seven unique Capture the Flag experiences. Remember that the interactive sessions have capacity limitations, so be sure to create your agenda in advance and reserve your seat for those you don’t want to miss.

Hundreds of sessions equates to hundreds of speakers, and this year we have more than 600 industry influencers who are excited to share their experiences and lessons learned with RSAC 2022 attendees. On Tuesday, we’ll also have seven sessions on the Inclusive Security agenda, showcasing 16 women who represent several of our industry partners. Additionally, throughout the week, there will be more than 40 different Partner Perspective sessions, including one with Lisa Plaggemier, Executive Director, National Cybersecurity Alliance and Oz Alashe, CEO, Cybsafe who will be talking about, A Whole Lotta BS (Behavior Science) About Cybersecurity.

Expo

This year's Expo will host more than 400 exhibitors, who will be showcasing the myriad solutions available to help with your security needs. You can visit hundreds of exhibitors showcasing their cutting-edge products, and there’s also the RSAC Early Stage Expo, where you’ll find 35 of the industry’s most promising newcomers who will be featuring their innovative products and solutions.
