RSA Conference 2018: What You Can Expect at This Year’s Event

RSA Conference 2018 What You Can Expect at This Year’s Event

The biggest schmoozefest in the IT security industry – The annual RSA Conference in San Francisco is an event of key trends.

In past years, Fortune has analyzed the titles of scheduled sessions at the event to determine what’s hot and what’s not. Between 2012 and 2015, for example, “cyber” and “cloud” rose to prominence, signaling the growing acceptance of a buzzy self-descriptor and a new kind of IT landscape, while “crypto” and “commerce,” which were top of mind at earlier iterations of the event, fell out of favor.

The the previous years, we have seen our sessions in event determine what is trending and what is not, what is critical and what is not. We have seen how in 2012 and 2015 was the time when all talked about cyber and cloud, showing the never-ending landscape of IT technology. Now this year we have cryptocurrencies and e-commerce related topics to talk about.

As you know every year RSA Conference is built around a theme, which highlights a significant aspect of information security. This year’s theme is “Now Matters.”

With more than half of the earth population on the Internet, data is spreading at twist speeds. As we turn out to be more subject to the most recent our own lives are getting to be advanced. With that is the inescapable acknowledge that cyber threats are increasingly posing a threat than before, giving cybercriminals more chance to strike
