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 wireless hacking and vulnerabilities in radio frequency devices, and challenge your infosec skills.

Located adjacent to RSAC Early Stage Expo, the space hosts the Cybrew Café which offers specialty coffees, a cool atmosphere and charging stations where you can recharge your physical and mental batteries. This year, RSAC Sandbox opens with the first-ever RSAC Launch Pad, a platform where three selected participants will have the opportunity to pitch leading security venture capitalists for potential investment. Following the RSAC Launch Pad is the fifth annual craft beer tasting event and networking reception, CyBEER Ops Networking Reception & International Meet-Up!
