As the annual RSA Security Conference kicks off this week, thousands of security professionals, IT managers, and senior executives will converge on San Francisco to discuss the latest trends and to share approaches that work. But don’t look to the stage for insights in the latest security issues.
The conference team starts working on sessions programming in the summer and fall, before many of the biggest security events of 2016 emerged, including the rise of the Mirai botnet, the disruptive attack against Dyn, allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, and Yahoo’s two megabreaches. While there are scheduled sessions about the security of the internet of things (especially connected cars) and nation-state attacks, the bulk of the conversations will be about the mundane security issues IT regularly deals with: social engineering, sophisticated malware, challenges of managing a sprawling network, and others.
