It’s the final countdown! RSA 2019 is less than a month away!

Events Posted Feb 8, 2019 by Courtney Kruzement-Prykhodko

Believe it or not, RSA is only 4 weeks away. While it may sound like plenty of time, CHEN PR has been busy strategizing, pitching and locking in briefings for weeks.

Arguably the world’s top information security industry extravaganza, the RSA Conference draws more than 50,000 attendees each year. Since 1995, a theme has been chosen each year to highlight a specific contribution or illustration related to information security.

This year’s theme is “Better.”

RSA Conference asks, “When it comes to cybersecurity, what defines better? New tools for building stronger walls? Sharper algorithms for predicting risk? AI and machine learning to help outsmart cybercriminals?”

Our clients are committed to doing more – and better — each day through their solutions, research, educational programs and insights. Here’s what they’re discussing at RSA 2019:



  • Digital Guardian – (North Expo #743) VP Cybersecurity Tim Bandos (Former DuPont IR/Threat Intel Director) will join other execs to address a range of data security trends and threats from data loss and Blockchain to IoT risks and endpoint security.


  • Duo Security: (South Expo #1835) Duo Co-founder and newly minted Cisco VP Dug Song will address the state of Duo as a Cisco company and the climate for security M&A. Among the execs joining him will be Head of Advisory CISOs Wendy Nather, who will share insights into authentication issues from the strength and state of MFA, to 2FA bypass issues in the news, to the future of identity.




  • SafeBreach – (South Expo #3324) SafeBreach CTO and VP of Research Itzik Kotler will share perspectives about the company’s ongoing research into exploits of sandbox services as well as the latest successful attack methods. Additionally, SafeBreach Founder and former LivePerson CSO Guy Bejerano will be discuss attack trends, techniques and tactics, and the rise in organizational war gaming.


  • Sonrai Security – Co-founders Brendan Hannigan and Sandy Bird, who helped form and grow IBM’s Security business into a $2 billion division and the world’s largest enterprise security provider after the acquisition of Q1 Labs, just launched their startup. In addition to discussing their unique approach to cloud security – one that’s focused on the relationship between data and identity – they’ll address the current startup climate, security-related business trends, and the challenges facing cloud native security – including cascading data breaches prompted by everything from misconfigured data stores to malicious exploits of cloud platforms.


And, if that’s not enough to get you excited for RSA, CHEN PR is once again sponsoring the 11th Securosis RSA Disaster Recovery Breakfast. Taking place March 7th from 8-11 a.m. at Tabletop Tap House in the Metreon, it’s an open-door event to reflect, grab breakfast, and start your day right (with Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas, of course) and otherwise recover from the Olympian effort that is attending RSA. To help estimate numbers, please RSVP to rsvp (at) securosis (dot) com if you’re planning to join us. We hope to see you there!
