1RSA Conference 2018: Finding the Silver Linings in Cyber-Security
The annual RSA Conference ran from April 16 to 20 in San Francisco, filling the cavernous halls of the North, South and West buildings of the Moscone Center, as well as conference space at the nearby Marriott Marquis Hotel. More than 42,000 attendees were at the event, which had over 550 sessions and 600 companies exhibiting across the show floors. Rohit Ghai, president of RSA, kicked of the conference with a keynote address in which he emphasized the “silver linings” in modern security. Secretary of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen had a bit of a more sombre tone, warning adversaries that the United States would respond to any cyber-attacks. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the RSA Conference 2018 event.

Among the interesting booths in the exhibit hall was one that had the sign “FAKE Security.” The booth included giveaways of snake-oil bottles claiming to solve all kinds of cyber-security ailments. Although there was no indication in the Fake Security booth itself, it was run by cyber-security vendor Authentic8, which develops secure browser isolation technologies.
