That’s a Wrap! Recapping RSA 2017
We don’t know about you, but RSA 2017 was quite the busy and exciting week! From Chris Young to Seth Meyers, breakout sessions, “CyBEER” tastings, and the San Francisco views, this year’s RSA did not disappoint! Here are some of our favorite moments from the week:
At the Conference
Chris Young Keynote
On Tuesday, February 14th, Intel Security’s SVP & GM Chris Young took the stage for this fifth RSA keynote. This year his focus was on the current challenges facing cybersecurity, and looking toward the future. To conclude is keynote, Chris told the crowd that our highest call of action is to admit we can’t go alone. That “it’s from the smallest of voices, the future generation, who are counting on all of us to get the small things right.” If you weren’t at RSA, or couldn’t stream it live, don’t worry. You can watch his powerful keynote here.

McAfee by Intel Booth
If you were at RSA this year there is a good chance you stopped by the McAfee by Intel booth. This year we had a lot going on, including theatre sessions, live demos, and even a book signing. We also had some swag and a few social media contests going on at the booth, where lucky winners scored prizes like an Amazon Echo and Star Wars Drone. Shout out to the winners!
During the conference, Intel Security launched the OpenDXL Python client and had live demos at the booth. It is now available for organizations to download, develop, and deploy with confidence. Did we mention it’s free? As Chris Young mentioned in his keynote, “nothing to buy, only something to gain.” You can find it here.
On Wednesday, some of Intel Security’s cybersecurity pros shared their best security tips. From mobile security to teaching your kids about online safety these guys had all the answers. They even got in on our caption contest that day!
Outside the Conference
Women in Tech Breakfast
Tuesday, we hosted the Women in Tech breakfast at TRACE Restaurant. We had a great turn-out, which included Intel Security’s Candace Worley, Lynda Grindstaff, Patty Hatter, Lisa Depew, and Celeste Fralick. At breakfast, they discussed the cybersecurity skills shortage and how to solve this problem through diverse hiring practices.
CTA Ribbon Cutting
There was also exciting news from the Cyber Threat Alliance on the second day of the conference! Vincent Weafer, Chris Young, Steve Grobman, were all present as they announced Cisco and Check Point Software Technologies being added as new founding members of the CTA.
RSA 2017 may be over but we are already looking forward to coming back to collaborate and learn with the best in cybersecurity. Let the countdown to RSA 2018 begin!
