RSAC Sandbox

The RSA Conference Sandbox is full of hands-on interactive experiences to test your infosec skills. Demo and discuss how pervasive computing and connectedness will inevitably lead to a broader threat landscape in healthcare and business; expand your thinking about threats to smart cities, electric grids and industrial processing plants; learn more about the prioritization of cyber safety in areas that affect public safety and transportation, and challenge your infosec skills for network and digital forensics.

Cybrew CafeThe Sandbox will be located in the Marriott Marquis, Yerba Buena 8, adjacent to the RSAC Early Stage Expo. Also located in the space is the Cybrew Café which offers specialty coffees, a cool atmosphere and charging stations where you can recharge your physical and mental batteries. 

This year the Sandbox opens with the Conference’s fourth annual craft beer tasting event, CyBEER Ops!
