After many Chats On The Road To RSA Conference SF 2019, it is now time for those conversations that happened on the floor of the Moscone Center.

There were so many that we will break them in multiple newsletters. 

Here's what you get today

[ The next will follow in a few days ]

Here are the remaining Chats on the Road to RSAC 2019 that didn't make the newsletter yet. These are still a great listen if you did not make it to the conference this year!


Connecting The Dots For The Future | With John Chambers, Mike Fong, And Vijay Balasubramaniyan  By Sean Martin | Co-host Marco Ciappelli

In today’s chat, Marco Ciappelli and Sean Martin speak with John Chambers, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, JC2 Ventures, Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cisco, Mike Fong, Founder and CEO at Privoro, and Vijay Balasubramaniyan, CEO at Pindrop. Together, the group discusses their role during RSA Conference, how corporations can balance security innovation with security operations, and the opportunity and impact new ventures can have on society.

This is my last podcast for our Chats on the Road to RSA Conference 2019 series. After this, we will record literally from the road and from different locations in San Francisco.

First of all, let’s all remember that companies are made of people. You can talk about Artificial Intelligence, digital automation, algorithms, robotics, and all the other amazing things happening in our society, but ultimately none of them come from nothing; they all come from the carbon-based unit that we call humans.

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, Paul 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.

In today’s chat, Sean Martin connects with Jason Fruge, CISO at Fossil, who reviews some of the trends he and his fellow CISOs are discussing, along with some of the things they may not be thinking about. These points lead us to the activities and events in which Jason is participating during RSA Conference, including a panel he is on, session themes he will be investigating, and other topics he will be exploring with his peers also in attendance during the week.

In today’s chat, Sean and Selena connect with Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, to give us a sneak peek into her RSA Conference talk, called (Girl) Scouting for Talent: The Solution in the Next Generation. A former Girl Scout herself, Sylvia shares how her career as a rocket scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory started with the Girl Scouts. We also chat about some of the Girl Scouts’ latest initiatives, like their STEM pledge to add 2.5 million girls to the STEM pipeline by 2025, diversity and inclusion, and the technology talent pipeline.

In this podcast, we spoke with two experts deeply entrenched in the world of industrial control systems and critical infrastructure. Galina Antova and Emily Miller join Sean Martin and Marco Ciappelli to give us a view of the state of security for this slice of society while connecting the dots to their RSA Conference panel, Why Industrial IoT Security Is Really about Saving Lives.

Chats On The Road To RSAC 2019 | Solving The Cybersecurity Talent Shortage | With Carmen Marsh Of Inteligenca By Selena Templeton

Today’s guest is Carmen Marsh, CEO and Managing Partner at Inteligenca, who gives us a sneak peek into her Solving Our Cybersecurity Talent Shortage panel, including how her experience living and working in four different countries gives her unique insights into the issue of diversity and inclusion, the power of mentoring, and unconscious bias.


Now, how about a few nice recaps and thoughts about how the conference turned out? 

Yeah? OK. Here you go then; two now and more next time.

By Marija Atanasova

Over 45,000 people descended on San Francisco for the annual RSA Conference — the biggest information security convention in the world. I was one of them. This was my third RSAC, and I’m happy to share a few things struck me as noteworthy compared to years past.

By Sean Martin

After nearly a few decades in the InfoSec industry, Sean Martin has a deep look back at RSA Conference in San Francisco to see how things have changed, what was top-of-mind this year, and how the community aspect of the conference this year made for one of the best events yet for Sean, the ITSPmagazine team, and the publication overall.

Daily Video Recaps recorded on the Moscone Center floor, from the beach, or in the California hills.
Honestly, you never know when you think about something important to say!
Last but not least, one of the two Unusual Gatherings recorded on Broadcast Alley. Huge thanks to the generosity of RSA Conference that offered us this space and camera crew for filming this episode of our weekly Talk Show.
