Bringing risk-adaptive protection to RSA

Sarah Vela

We’ll have a lot to share at this year’s RSA Conference – in the booth, in speaking sessions, and at networking opportunities throughout the week. Here’s a preview of all we have going on, and some opportunities to register for events. If you’re coming to RSA, we want to meet you!

In the Booth

Stop by Booth N3525 for hands-on demos and presentations from our experts on the company’s Risk-Adaptive Protection solution, Web Security incorporating CASB capabilities, human-aware NGFW and cross-domain solutions. We’re giving away some retro t-shirts this year, and if you attend a theater presentation you could win a Bionic Bird flying robotic bird.

Extending Behavioral Insights into Risk-Adaptive Protection

Tuesday, April 17 at 3:30 PM | Moscone North 20

Analytics has become a security buzzword, but identifying valuable risk insights and turning them into actionable protective measures remains challenging for many enterprises and government agencies. Today’s behavior analytics tools can provide various insights into risky and anomalous activity but are powerless to enforce protection policies. This session explores critical insights on risky human behavior and abnormal activity that can be gained by tightly integrating user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) with other security technologies such as data loss prevention and insider threat. Learn how to break free of the forensic nature of traditional UEBA, enabling data and user insights with policy enforcement to happen as security events occur -- not weeks, months or years after the fact.

Cyber Fatigue and What We Can Do About It

Wednesday, April 18 at 1:45 PM | Moscone West 2008

Fatigue seems to be the normal state for those working in the cybersecurity industry. Exhausted might be better word for it. But what is causing this fatigue and have we lost sight of the “Righteous Fight”? Ford will discuss why we’ve lost our way as security professionals and how we must recognize this truth in order to work smarter rather than harder.

  • Forcepoint Chief Scientist Dr. Richard Ford

Special Briefing with Michael Chertoff

We’re delighted to announce a special conversation with Michael Chertoff, Executive Chairman at The Chertoff Group, and former US Secretary of Homeland Security. Registration for this is required!

Crucial Conversations Every CIO and CISO Should Have with Their Board of Directors

Tuesday, April 17 at 3:00 PM | St Regis Hotel – Conservatory Room (4th Floor)

Joining Mr. Chertoff in this interactive discussion will be Forcepoint CEO Matt Moynahan to explore crucial conversations that every CIO and CISO should be having with their Board of Directors. Security leaders need to help their Boards understand that organizations must evolve from a threat-centric reactive environment to a more human-centric proactive approach. As an experienced board member, Mr. Chertoff will provide his insights into how the boardroom security conversation has changed and will provide advice for fellow board members, CEOs, CIOs and CISOs.

Come and Network with us

Security Leaders Reception at RSA 2018 (registration required)

Tuesday, April 17 at 5:00 PM

Register today to network with security peers over craft beverages, fresh seafood and hors d’oeuvres. Our experts will be on site to discuss human-centric security, a revolutionary approach that associates identity with behavior and intent to identify high-risk activity, prioritize the security response and adapt policies and programs for enforcement in real time.
