It has become an ITSPmagazine tradition to start our RSA Conference coverage with what we call Chats On The Road To RSA Conference. We connect with conference keynote speakers, presenters, panelists and organizers to start the conversation way before anyone else does.
During these conversations, we get a sneak peek into what they are planning to share at the conference as well as a glimpse into their backgrounds and some additional insight on the topics they will discuss.
ITSPmagazine coverage, podcasts, webcasts, articles, and all our happenings during RSA Conference 2019 will be made possible by the generosity of our sponsors. We are ever so grateful for your support.
Have a story to share and want to join us for the journey? We invite you to discover the benefit of the full coverage sponsorship and let us know if you are interested in joining us for our adventures. We look forward to another exciting conference.
In today’s chat, I speak with Paula Januszkiewicz, CEO of CQURE, and Rod Simmons, VP of product strategy at STEALTHbits, to discuss the role of identity, privileged access, and how organizations are — or aren’t — adequately looking at the risk they face from an attacker’s point of view.
With this context in mind, Paula gives us a view into the keynote she is giving at RSA Conference, the session she also has there, and the work she is doing with Rod to peel back the onion, if you will, on how attacks look and work.
