Since 1991, RSA Conference has established itself as the destination where the world talks security. It’s emerged from a small group of technical experts to a mainstream gathering of the best professionals discussing how to enable business in an insecure world.
Headlines do not lie. The dedicated work our attendees, speakers and exhibitors strive to complete each day is the fuel that propels innovation, facilitates invention and sustains productivity. Business simply cannot exist without the great minds who pack the Moscone Center each year.
I’ve attended RSA Conference for more than ten years with roles at organizations like Tripwire, McAfee, Archer Technologies and RSA. Now in my new role as RSA Conference General Manager, I’m excited to build upon the legacy of great work and attendee experience established by our Conference management group.
Each year, I’m astounded at the collective intelligence that surrounds me from disparate industries and practices. In addition to learning strategies presented by world-class speakers, the ability to network with peers to collaborate on projects offers an outside perspective that is unparalleled in security. Finance professionals hear advice from Cloud security directors. Startups at Innovation Sandbox share new viewpoints with security veterans. RSA Conference is a melting pot of experiences that boil up ideas poised to shape our lives.
The Conference is nothing without the smart people on the floor exchanging ideas. You are RSA Conference and I need to hear from the people responsible for making this event great. If you have a suggestion, please share it. If you have an idea for enhancing your experience and learning, I want to know about it. RSA Conference can only improve by hearing your voice.
Heading into my first US Conference as General Manager, I am excited to say that I too am RSA Conference. Keys to the success is to continue to foster the vendor neutral and content independent atmosphere that has made RSA Conference the best event with a mission to create the most engaging experiences that empower people to enhance their profession that protect their organizations, industries and the world. I look forward to joining you this year to drive our mission forward and learn, share and secure at RSA Conference 2014.
GM, RSA Conference
