RSA 2017 Takes Shape with NCSA, Gemalto, SecuGen On Hand

The National Cyber Security Alliance has returned as a sponsor of this year’s RSA Conference, one of the world’s biggest security events.

RSA 2017 Takes Shape with NCSA, Gemalto, SecuGen On HandThe nonprofit group sees the event as an opportunity to continue spreading the message of its STOP. THINK. CONNECT. campaign, launched last year to help raise awareness about identity security issues online. Throughout RSA 2017, the NCSA will be on hand at the RSAC CyberSafety Village to talk to kids about this increasingly important issue, and it has organized a number of other events through RSA 2017, from a joint discussion with the Department of Homeland Security to a Valentine’s cocktail party, to help spread the word.

Much of that messaging is likely to be echoed by other RSA 2017 participants, including Gemalto, which is inviting attendees to come to its booth to learn about encrypting data, managing encryption keys, and administrating app and data access. In a statement, the company also urged attendees to “interact with our life size yarn wall to weave in your security story!”

Meanwhile, SecuGen has announced plans to show off new fingerprint sensors at the event, complementing a range of other vendors keen to show off their security solutions.

RSA 2017 runs from February 13th to 17th in San Francisco.
