Every year, members of the Compuquip Cybersecurity team join more than 50,000 other people for the annual RSA Conference. What is this conference, what does it have to do with cybersecurity, and why should you join us for the next one?
What is the RSA Conference?
The RSA Conference is an annual event focused on helping improve cybersecurity awareness and knowledge throughout the world. A major focus of this conference is bringing to light the new cybersecurity technologies that will help businesses move beyond a “reactive” cybersecurity stance to embraces a “proactive” cybersecurity posture.
Each year, tens of thousands of people from every industry travel to the conference to learn about cybersecurity design or to network with one of the many vendors that attend the event.
This event is the largest cybersecurity conference in the world and is held each year.
Where is the RSA Conference?
This year, the USA conference will be held at the Moscone Center, 747 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94103.
Another RSA Conference event will be held later in the year at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore (10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956).
When is the RSA Conference?
The San Francisco Conference begins on Monday, March 4 at 7:00 AM (with registration starting on Saturday, March 2 at 2:00 PM). This RSA Conference will end on Friday, March 8.
The Singapore RSA Conference will begin on Tuesday, July 16 and continue through Thursday, July 18. Exact times for on-site registration for this Conference are, at the time of this writing, yet to be determined.
If you cannot make the San Francisco event, the Singapore event may serve as a valuable second chance.
