What's NEW at RSA Conference this year?
Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, RSA Conference continues to drive the information security agenda worldwide. Join us at RSA Conference 2016 and gain access to two halls of 500+ exhibitors, 400+ expert-led sessions, unprecedented networking and not-to-be-missed keynote speakers.
Explore the list below of new and expanded programs at this year's Conference.
Content all day
We heard you loud and clear in the evaluations: you value educational choices and class time. We have extended our educational tracks to all day on Wednesday and Thursday, allowing you to engage in smaller group settings in the afternoon for conversations and deeper dives around a variety of topics.
More Learning Labs
Last year we introduced Learning Labs with the goal of providing a highly interactive, facilitated learning experience. All of the content is very hands on and small group oriented, and the session is two hours in length. We limit the Labs to 50 attendees in order to assure maximum engagement and participation. This year we are offering 12 Labs across a variety of topics.
Expanded Crowdsourced Sessions
The top sessions selected by you and the rest of the security community will take the stage at RSA Conference as our crowdsourced track expands. Full Conference and Discover badges will have access to these sessions.
Birds of a Feather Breakfasts
Get your morning’s fill with the Birds of a Feather early gatherings! Grab your breakfast and bring it to the discussion rooms, where attendees will designate topics of interest and find like-minded individuals for conversation. Topics will develop organically; this is, by design, loosely structured to give you an opportunity to network and set the agenda for discussions of interest to you.
Continue the conversation in the afternoon with our new Focus-On Series, which brings some of our most popular speakers and topics back together for a smaller group discussion and Q&A with the presenter. These are discussion based—no new slides will be presented—giving you the opportunity to get up close and personal with others who share your interest in even more depth on the content presented.
Expanded Expo Hours
The Expo will be open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM. It will be open Thursday from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
The Expo Plus Pass is now called the Discover Pass and offers additional new benefits, including admittance to:
Security Basics Track sessions on Monday
All Crowdsourced sessions Tuesday – Thursday
All Forum sessions Tuesday – Thursday
ISC2 Training sessions on Friday
The RSA Conference Expo gives you an opportunity to connect with Information Security leaders in two main halls - North Expo and South Expo. Come see how RSA Conference exhibitors offer you the latest technological solutions, provide hands-on learning opportunities and demonstrate how they can help you better secure your organization.
RSA developed RSA Conference in 1991 as a forum for cryptographers to gather and share the latest knowledge and advancements in the area of Internet security. Today, RSA Conference and related RSA Conference branded activities are still managed by RSA, with the support of the industry. RSA Conference event programming is judged and developed by information security practitioners and other related professionals.
