RSA Conference planning is a heavy-lift, to say the least… a process that even drives some to drink, according to last year’s blog post. Side note: that’s a joke. With less than two months to go, though, it’s now that time when CHEN PR starts to pool resources, strategize about conference pitching and begin to […]

What’s Hot in Cybersecurity? Find out on December 5th

With every new cyber attack or breach, the latest victim (just yesterday) being the US Army, we’re constantly reminded that a business’ data and networks are never truly safe.

The CHEN PR Version of “Team Building”

As I’ve boasted before, one of my favorite things about CHEN PR is the company’s “work hard, play hard” attitude. The agency life – and especially when you’re dealing with a majority of cybersecurity clients – isn’t all fun and games. Last week, for example, the Equifax breach happened. And while you’d think it’d be […]

Grab Your Party Hat and Your Beverage: The Ups and Downs of RSA Conference Planning

As my colleague Jennifer recently shared, the clock is ticking until the RSA Conference (T minus 17 days!) and things aren’t slowing down at the small but mighty CHEN PR headquarters. Every year, sometime between Thanksgiving and New Year’s we take a deep breath and send out that first calendar invite to get together to […]

When I first started working at CHEN PR I remember being given the passwords to online subscriptions that we share and thinking, “Are they serious? How do they remember all these?” The passwords would basically look like this: fgEw76^.l21\59LQ4~YaY. I came to CHEN from a non-profit—very far from high-tech and security, to say the least– […]
