RSA Conference 2019: A PreviewContent Director Britta Glade Describes Hot Topics, Compelling Features
What are some of the hottest issues that will be discussed at this year's RSA Conference, to be held March 4-8 in San Francisco? Britta Glade, content director for the world's largest data security event, says DevSecOps - as well as third-party risk and cloud-related issues - are emerging as key themes.
DevSecOps is a subject that's at the tipping point, with many enterprises willing "to share the good, the bad and the ugly," she says in an interview with Information Security Media Group.
Glade also calls attention to "learning labs" at this year's event, which she describes as offering a "guide on the side" rather than a "sage on the stage." She explains: "There's the opportunity to go through something like a breach response, and the guide is taking you through an actual breach. Everyone in that room has a role; you're working through it together ... in little groups to share ideas. And it's a great opportunity to get to know other attendees."
In this interview (see audio link below photo), Glade also discusses:
- Key topics are at this year's event;
- The "Early Stage Expo," which will highlight new and emerging innovations in information security;
- A new track on "public interest technology."
Glade is director of content and curation for the RSA Conference. She has been in the learning and security sector for 23 years. Previously, she was head of analyst relations for RSA. In 2014, she was recognized as one of the top 10 analyst relations professionals by the Institute of Analyst Relations Professionals.
