Remember the days when RSA was an intimate little show with a few thousand visitors?  Neither do we!  Next week marks the start of RSA 2015, and the largest information security conference in the US will descend on San Francisco. Somewhere in the midst of 25,000 or so expected attendees will be the Social-Engineer team, so we wanted to make sure you know what we’re up to throughout the conference!

RSA Conf-1

RSA boasts not one, but two giant expo halls full of exhibitors. We anticipate you’ll experience an overwhelming number of booths filled with security buzzwords such as “threat intelligence,” “threat protection,” and “cloud security.” While the security products are a great part of RSA, we’d like to see attendees focus more on security services and the role of the human element in security and incident response. Remember, technical control and policies are only part of the solution. If you’re interested in building a security program that combats malicious phishing emails or generates user awareness, we certainly hope you’ll check out Michele’s presentation: Phishing Dark Waters: The Malicious Side of Emails. Also, if you’re interested in setting up a private meeting to discuss security matters, shoot us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Finally, the Human Hacker himself, fresh from a top-secret training, will make an appearance on Thursday for a book signing you won’t want to miss! Following is a who, what, when, and where of Social-Engineer at RSA next week. Will you be attending the conference? We hope to see you there!
