RSAC Sandbox

When you arrive at RSA Conference this April in San Francisco, proceed towards the intersection of IT security and society and you’ll find yourself in the RSA Conference Sandbox.

Like any good sandbox, it’s a fun place to play with others, get dirty, and participate in hands-on interactive experiences. And of course ITSPmagazine will be there exploring, having conversations with the other kids, making mud pies.

This year there are four sandboxes where InfoSec professionals and enthusiasts can test their security skills, learn more about the technical impact of pervasive connectedness, and discuss the moral implications that a smart infrastructure and IoT landscape have on our lives.
