What I plan to learn at RSA 2017

Article by: 24122 Nick Deshpande

I’m attending the RSA Cybersecurity Conference in the US for the first time this year and look forward to the chance to engage with leading minds in our field. Our CEO is constantly challenging our team to reflect on the implications of new cyber threats and to challenge more traditional thinking. After taking stock of InfoSec in 2016 – with the rise and rise of ransomware, high-volume DDoS attacks, market consolidation, law enforcement successes, the US presidential campaign, and much more – I jotted down some questions that I think have captured our attention. Are these topics you’ve wondered about or addressed?

  • How do leaders build an effective organizational model for security in the enterprise, across service lines, from design through delivery and beyond?
  • Has anyone measured return on security investment? Have we confronted the problem of a lack of proper focus and “vendor distraction”?
  • Did the Joint Analysis Report by the US-CERT and other government reports undermine the public-private partnerships that that were touted in 2016 as the way forward to confront cyber threats?
  • Has security kept pace with digital transformation and can controls scale across environments and time to enable agile delivery of applications and services? Also, who’s doing DevSecOps well?
  • What’s the state of cyber-physical security convergence? How are tomorrow’s SOCs preparing for the kind of situational awareness required by this construct?
  • How will identity and access management extend to the user base in a way that preserves a great experience? That includes all manners of users, including devices.
  • If I leave RSA with a better understanding these concepts, I’ll consider it a success. With others’ insights, I hope to delve in and provide answers in future articles.
