The RSA Conference is a venue for information security professionals from different backgrounds, countries, and industries to share their expertise. Attendees interact with and learn from top security professionals to stay abreast of cyber threats and the various security solutions to address the threats.
2017 was the worst year in terms of the number of breaches and data compromises. By one estimate, there were 5,207 breaches in total, a 20% increase from the previous high in 2015. Cloud security is rapidly evolving to keep up with advanced actors. Attending RSA and exchanging information with other professionals is a great way to stay up-to-date with the latest practices and technology to best protect your data.
Skyhigh Networks was acquired by McAfee in January, so McAfee will have two booths this year at RSA. You can find McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud at Booth S1301 in the South Hall and McAfee Corporate at Booth N3801 in the North Hall. In the McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud booth, there will be impactful cloud security theater presentations from McAfee partners and customers. During the week of RSA, there will be multiple exclusive events hosted by McAfee. See the full schedule of events and presentations below:
Cloud Security Alliance Dedicated Event
Each year, the Cloud Security Alliance hosts a summit before the RSA Conference, kickstarting the near week-long event, that focuses entirely on cloud security. This event is an opportunity to learn about the future of cloud security from seasoned professionals who have worked in the industry for years.
CSA Summit Keynote: Security in the “There’s an app for that…” Era
Monday, April 16 | 1:55PM – 2:15 PM | Moscone Center South – Level 2
In the last 5 years cloud access security brokers (CASBs) have built robust API integrations to enforce security policies within the world’s most popular SaaS and IaaS systems such as Office 365, Salesforce, AWS, and Azure. But today there remains thousands of cloud applications such as GitHub, that don’t have API integrations with CASBs. In addition, network-based approaches have failed due to app breakage and user friction.
In this session, Rajiv Gupta, Senior Vice President of the Cloud Security Business Unit, will discuss an entirely new approach for scaling cloud security in the “There’s an app for that…” era.
McAfee Theater Sessions
The conference welcomes industry experts and professionals to the McAfee stage. At both booths, there will be presentations with technology partners, customers, as well as the latest and greatest from McAfee.
