The RSA Conference is the biggest annual event in our industry (really – there are tens of thousands of people there). But bigger doesn’t mean everything is better, and it can be all too easy to get lost in the event and fail to get value out of it. Even if you don’t attend, this is the time of year a lot of security companies focus on, which affects everything you see and read – for better and worse. This week we discuss how we get value out of the event, and how to find useful nuggets in the noise. From skipping panels (except Mike’s, of course) to hitting some of the less-known opportunities like Learning Labs and the Monday events, RSA can be very useful for any security pro, but only if you plan.
