RSA Conference 2017 – Data is the New Commodity

February is almost here, and while this means we are one month closer to spring, it also means it is time for the RSA Conference. The RSA Conference is an exciting time as thousands of people descend on Moscone Center in San Francisco to attend the world’s largest information security conference.  This year the conference is Feb 13-17.

We live in a digital world, and data is the new commodity.  This valuable asset must be protected by building security into your data and applications, along with the ability to detect, respond and remediate threats at scale. HPE Security is so passionate about helping customers protect their digital enterprise that we are Platinum sponsors of the RSA Conference and have several exciting opportunities to educate the attendees, including a keynote session by HPE Distinguished Technologist, Terence Spies.

terence-spiesKeynote: Data Futures: Protecting the Changing Value of Data
February 16, 2017 | 11:20 AM – 11:40 AM | Moscone West | Level 3
Terence Spies, HPE Distinguished Technologist, will delve into discussion revolving around the constant flux in the value of data–due to aggregation, correlation and usage. Hear how new cryptographic models, including quantum cryptography, homomorphic cryptography and Blockchain, protect both the current and future value of data—allowing business professionals to create, use and dispose of data with the confidence that they will be protected over time.

Women in IT Security and Their Advocates
February 15, 2017 | 7:00 AM – 7:45 AM | Moscone West | 2011 Table C
Join HPE’s Kerry Matre, Sr. Manager, Enterprise Security, as she leads this ‘Birds of a Feather’ chat discussing why it is hard to attract and retain women in IT security. Participants will discuss what approaches have worked to successfully recruit and retain female resources in their organizations or what was their own motivation to enter, and stay in the world of IT security and stay. Attendance is strictly limited to allow for a small group experience.

A Fully Automated SOC: Fact or Fiction
February 16, 2017 | 9:15 am – 10:00 am | Moscone North | 131.
Organizations continuously look to drive more value with less resources for their security operations. The deluge of data and lack of skilled security professionals highlight the critical need for automation to help manage today’s sophisticated attacks, but is it feasible to automate everything? Join HPE’s Jesse Emerson, Cyber Defense Consulting WW Lead, as he discusses the potential for security automation and where a human can’t be replaced.
