On-Site Tips & Tricks

Wifi Access at RSAC 2020
Important! The .RSACONFERENCE wireless network available at the Moscone Center is an open, unsecured 5 GHz network. NOTE: 2.4 GHz support is no longer supported at RSA Conference. RSA and Cisco AMP Threat Grid will be using data from the network for an educational demonstration on a working SOC, we strongly recommend that you use appropriate security measures, (e.g., utilizing a VPN connection, installing a personal firewall, updating security patches, turning off your wireless adapter when not in use, disabling ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) capabilities on your device).

  • Session Viewing Point

    Can’t make it to a session of interest? Visit Moscone West Level 2, Room 2004 and choose from up to eight different sessions to watch on a large screen. Provided headphones allow you to hear only the session you want.
  • Don't miss the networking opportunities

    Be sure to take advantage of all the networking events happening throughout the week. This is your chance to make in-person connections with peers from the global cybersecurity community.
  • Food options at Conference

    Full Conference Pass holders will receive continental breakfast, morning and afternoon snack breaks, exclusive access to the Cybrew Cafes in Moscone West, and a variety of catered items at both Monday’s Welcome Reception, as well as Thursday night’s RSAC After Hours event. For all pass types, there will be a Food Pavilion available to purchase food during lunch time hours. You can also head to the concession stands in Moscone, the Cybrew Cafe in RSAC Sandbox or nearby outlets.
