This track has sessions on mobile malware, application threats, device management and emerging threats to mobile platforms.

  • Policy & Government

    This track features sessions on current and proposed government strategies, policies, legislation and standards that could shape the direction of cloud computing, critical infrastructure protection, public private-partnerships, big data initiatives, cyber threat intelligence sharing, industry standards and security compliance requirements.

  • Peer2Peer Sessions

    The Peer2Peer sessions enable groups of no more than 25 people that share a common interest to come together and productively explore a specific security topic, facilitated by an experienced practitioner.

  • Professional Development

    Professional Development covers individuals’ technical and business/management training, credentialing and career development, as well as staff and personnel management. This track is scheduled on Monday.

  • Sandbox

    Starting off the week with the annual RSA®C Innovation Sandbox Contest, The Sandbox continues through Thursday and expands forward thinking ideas into experiential activities to put theory into practice. Engage in hands-on learning scenarios with the CSI Digital Crime Lab, a Live SCADA Demo, chip-level control of a target device with the JTAGulator, and get hands-on experience with automotive computers with Open Garages. You can also relax with Morning Meditation and QiGong, networking with peers at Cybrew, our full-service coffee bar, and much more! This year’s Sandbox offers RSA Conference attendees an expanded and enriched experience.

  • Security Mashup

    Interesting speakers and sessions on a wide range of topics not found anywhere else during the week.
