Dubbed “where the world talks about security,” the highly anticipated cyber security conference RSAConference2018 launches in San Francisco April 16-20, 2018.

Thousands of security experts, vendors and managers will gather to discuss current and anticipated issues in the industry. Analysis, discussion and workshops will follow in a week-long conference making RSA an expert advice focal point.

Center your Focus: Learn more about Insider Threats and User-Centric Analytics

With the expanding threat landscape, the industry now offers several different topics of discussion and mitigation methods. We’d like to encourage you to focus on panels highlighting user-centric monitoring and analytics as a proactive strategy to data threat mitigation.

Data threats will always be apparent. The key is developing strategies that stop the threats sooner, rather than later – saving the business money and it’s positive brand image.

With the amount of events that are taking place at RSA this year, it can feel overwhelming. We’ve compiled and listed several speakers and workshops to attend both on hot security topics and insider threat/monitoring insights.
