RSA 2017: Can’t Miss Events

By on Feb 07, 2017

Let the countdown begin: RSA is almost here!

The RSA conference in San Francisco is only a week away, and this year the theme is “Power of Opportunity,” inspired by the zen teaching to “pursue even the most advanced study with the mindset of a beginner.” We’re officially inspired (and excited).

Whether you’re a RSA veteran or newcomer, there’s a path (and party) for you.

Join us at the world’s leading forum for enterprise and technical information security professionals, and choose a topic/track based on what you want to get out of this year’s conference: is it hands-on sessions and keynotes with the best and brightest in cybersecurity, or is the expo hall more your speed? Take a look at the events we’re most excited about, below.

Hope to see you at RSA!


Our Senior Vice President and General Manager, Chris Young, will be presenting his fourth RSA keynote “Sweating the Small Stuff on a Global Scale.” Chris will explain the importance of balancing the macro view with the micro details in cybersecurity. Since his last keynote, Chris was appointed by President Barak Obama to the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Council. You won’t want to miss Chris as he takes the stage on February 14th, at 9am in Moscone West, Level 3.


#NoMoreRansom with Christiaan Beek & Raj Samani

On February 13th, Christiaan Beek and Raj Samani of McAfee will be once again joining forces in their session, “#NoMoreRansom: Industry and Law Enforcement Join Forces to Fight Back.” This session is a part of the Ransomware Summit, a day filled with discussion on ransomware research and case studies on response and recovery. Reserve your seat now before it’s too late.

Patty Hatter and the State of Cybersecurity

Patty Hatter, VP and General Manager of Professional Services will also be presenting at this year’s conference. Her session, “How Leaders of Tomorrow Attack Security Problems Holistically and Head On” is on February 14th, at 2:30pm at Moscone North Room 131. In her classroom presentation, Patty will examine the state of cybersecurity within today’s enterprises and offer her recommendations to IT leadership on how to address problems head on with transparency and teamwork. Reserve your seat now.

Expo Hall:

Be sure to stop by our booth #N3801 in the Expo North Hall— it’s going to be awesome (and you’ll have a chance to win some prizes)! Meet with our experts and sit in on theatre presentations or get hands-on experience at one of our 9 demo stations. It is an exciting time for McAfee, especially when it comes to cloud. On Monday, stop by the Cloud Security Alliance Summit at the Marriott Marquis hotel for a day filled with cloud focused sessions and panels. We’ll have a photo caption contest happening at the booth with some great prizes including an Amazon Echo and Star Wars Drone. Leave the booth with more knowledge and maybe even some swag.
