    by Britta Glade on October 9, 2015

    RSA Conference 2016 promises to be an amazing experience for our attendees. Aside from all of the great things in store to help us celebrate our 25 th anniversary—and there are some fabulous things you will not want to miss!—we are planning to introduce several new opportunities and restructure some current ones in our educational lineup to help our attendees maximize their time and investment at…

  • Get Ready for RSA Conference 2016 Call for Speakers

    by Britta Glade on July 2, 2015

    RSA Conference moves back to its “traditional” timing next year, taking place Feb. 29-Mar. 4 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. Quite naturally, that means Call for Speakers is back in the summer: watch for it to open July 15 and close on August 13. This is an incredibly busy time of year for many of you (who said anything about a vacation!?), so hopefully a heads up on this window of time…

  • Congrats to Everyone in Our First #RSAC Crowdsource Program, We Learned a Lot

    by Britta Glade on April 7, 2015

    The wait is over. We now have a slate of crowdsource sessions. Congratulations to everyone who participated in this inaugural program. We experimented with a new way of selecting educational sessions. We took a risk, and it was an exciting roller coaster ride. With a diverse—and vocal!—Program Committee by my side, we approached this experiment with the following tenets: Provide a lighter weight…

  • RSAC Speaker Submissions Reveal What the Industry Cares About

    by Britta Glade on December 10, 2014

    Predictions are dangerous business. Just ask Thomas Watson, who in 1943 as chairman of IBM said, “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." Wilbur Wright got it right, confessing in 1908: "In 1901, I said to my brother Orville that man would not fly for fifty years . . . Ever since, I have distrusted myself and avoided all predictions." As Mr. Wright’s wingman and an observer—not…

  • Mythbusters: RSAC Edition Part 2

    by Britta Glade on September 17, 2014

    In our last post we looked at RSA Conference myths that typically get associated with our call for submissions process. Here are a few more bubbles we’re more than happy to burst! Myth: RSAC Covers the Same Topics Every Year; Topics are Never Technical in Nature Although RSA Conference focuses primarily on the business of security, we do have technical tracks at our events. Our goal is to help our…

  • Mythbusters: RSAC Edition Part 1

    by Britta Glade on September 10, 2014

    The only thing people like more than a myth is separating fact from fiction. We all know some of the more famous myths: the explosive combination of soda and Pop Rocks candy will kill you, alligators roam the sewers of New York City and Walt Disney had himself cryogenically frozen. That said, you don’t have to be Jamie Hynemen or Adam Savage to bust the myths surrounding RSA Conference’s Call for…

  • The Journey of an RSA Conference Speaking Submission

    by Britta Glade on August 20, 2014

    When thinking about the process for RSA Conference speaking proposals, I remembered School House Rock’s “I’m Just a Bill.” You know the one—“Bill,” a cute rolled-up piece of paper is sitting on the steps of Capitol Hill. He teaches the curious kid about the process, the waits, the analysis, and the debates that take place as part of his journey to becoming a law. For those “curious kids on the…

  • Dog Days of Summer Breed Innovative Speaking Submissions: Call for Speakers to Open Early September

    by Britta Glade on June 17, 2014

    Quick—I say summer, you say…..? Vacation? Beach? Relaxation? RSA Conference speaking submission? I’m pretty sure those are the first four thoughts that popped into your head, though perhaps not in that order. As you are hopefully well aware, RSA Conference will be held April 20-24 next year. This brings with it the promise of better weather as well as more time to prepare your speaking…

  • Present Yourself: Using SlideShare to Grow Your Business

    by Ben Rothke on July 29, 2013

    SlideShare is a free web 2.0 based slide hosting service where users can upload presentation-based files. Launched in October 2006, it’s considered to be similar to YouTube, but for slideshows. It was originally meant to be used for businesses to share slides among employees more easily, but it has since expanded to also become a host of a large number of slides which are uploaded merely to…
