Advancing Information Risk Practices

Discussing successes and pitfalls, these leaders have set out to challenge conventional ideas and pursue cutting edge tactics.

Practical Intelligence Sharing
9 AM – 12 PM
The theme of RSA Conference 2016 was “Connect to Protect.” Indeed, as we’ve moved from a discussion about threat “information” to threat “intelligence,” there has been a maturation of the discussion on how to really share “intelligently.” Every organization is at a different stage in the journey, and there is much to learn from all of the different perspectives. This seminar will challenge conventional approaches, highlight what’s working and where we still need some work, and provide a framework for understanding the opportunities and challenges around intelligence sharing.

9 AM – 5 PM
Explosive growth demands focused understanding, so we’ve developed this new seminar to give attendees a full day all about ransomware, and its multifaceted implications across technical, policy, compliance and financial response. Sessions will discuss innovative research, present case studies on response and recovery to ransomware, explore combatting ransomware and debate if—and when—you should pay the ransom.

Security Foundations
9 AM – 5 PM
The Security Foundations seminar explains some of the most important security principles and is designed to provide practitioners with an overview of essential concepts that will enhance understanding of the current advanced security issues that will be discussed during the week. The seminar will feature some of the giants of the security industry, offering up-to-date perspectives on fundamental security topics. While designed for practitioners with five or less years of direct experience in the security field, the framework it provides to the overall landscape will be of value to the full spectrum of RSA Conference attendees.

How-to Series: Year One Innovators and Entrepreneurs
10 AM – 12 PM
This new seminar is designed to help entrepreneurs understand the process of taking a great idea/solution to the next level: developing a business plan, securing funding, building a company and launching a product. This content is part of a larger commitment RSA Conference is making to promote innovation in the industry, including the Innovation Sandbox Contest and the crowning of the “Most Innovative Startup,” beginning at 1 PM in the Viewing Point, and the new Early Stage Expo, which runs Tuesday through Thursday at the Marriott.

RSAC CyberSmart Parents Education Workshop:  "The Always-On Generation and the Evolving Digital Landscape"
1 – 3 PM
Our kids face a barrage of social media content, new apps, multiplayer games and a continually evolving digital landscape. How do we, as parents and caregivers, keep this “always-on” generation safe online? This seminar will provide an overview of how to support and secure your child’s online activities. Hear about the latest brain research on sleep and addiction, learn how to recognize and address cyberbullying, and find out what youth and teens are saying about the rewards and challenges they experience in a networked world. We will share strategies to help you create a positive, open dialogue with your children and discuss how to achieve healthy balance in our digitally tethered lives. Afterwards, attendees can visit our CyberSafety Village and interact with service organizations and non-profits whose mission supports education around keeping kids safe online.

Securing Diversity: Women in Cybersecurity
2 – 5 PM
One of our most critical national security issues is the negative unemployment we face in our industry, and yet we are regressive when it comes to diversity. We need diversity to solve the problem. This inaugural seminar explores the power—and opportunity—of women in security, as individuals and as part of effective teams. Members of our community come at these realities with different perspectives, reflected by our energizing and provocative seminar sessions, which feature a range of accomplished women at various points in their careers, exploring how they got there and the power of diversity (gender and generational) to really lead us into achieving the ultimate cyber workforce of the future. This seminar is appropriate for all of our attendees, offering a great start to the week with strong content and networking opportunities.

IAPP: The New Technological Approach to Privacy
1 – 4:30 PM
For years a place of policy and law, privacy is entering its next evolutionary phase, with technological approaches and solutions. In order to operationalize privacy, and help it work side by side with cybersecurity, organizations needs frameworks and tools that allow for controls and automation. These are under rapid development. Further, privacy understanding is working its way deeper into the cybersecurity community and efforts to protect personal information are now infused with an understanding of how to use and manage personal information in the first place. Join us for a look into privacy’s future for an understanding about how privacy is best done here in the present day.
