Getting The Most Out Of RSA

The RSA conference starts next week and lets be honest it is becoming known as a stuffy management conference with very little useful technical information but if you know where to look you can take some deep dives.  I have put together a quick guide of some amazing talks and events I am looking forward to.

Talks:

BSidesSF –  Coming into town a few days early just to attend this conference.  There is so much good stuff on the schedule but I do not want to miss the Advanced Internet dataset combinations for #ThreatHunting & Attack Prediction talk.

Google Cloud Talks –  If you have cloud “stuff” in your company you need to swing by and catching some of these talks.  I am really looking forward to the Container Security Panel and while not technical Humanising DDoS: the technical and emotional impact of large-scale attacks on an organisation looks ridiculously intriguing.

IOActive –  IOActive always does an amazing job with their IOASIS and talks.  I am really looking forward to the Implementing Inexpensive Honeytrap Techniques  and the Hardcore Cloud Forensics talks.

DevOOPS: Attacks and Defenses for DevOps Toolchains –  This talk by Ken and Chris is the one RSA talk I will not miss.

Events:

I ♥ Cisco Umbrella Soirée – My friends at OpenDNS always do an amazing job with their RSA party and I cant wait to see what they do on Valentines day with 20,000 geeks stuck in San Francisco. 

Forescout – One, two, three and to the Snoop Doggy Dogg is at the door Ready to make an entrance so back on up.   Snoop provided the soundtrack to my 7th grade basketball team and I am really looking forward to seeing him in person.

Tenable -Tenable is having an 80’s party on Sunday and to quote Jay-Z:
Wanna bring the 80’s back?
That’s okay with me, that’s where they made me at.

BJJ Smackdown – For $50 you can be punched in the face by Jeremiah Grossman and maybe pickup some BJJ skills.

Rsaparties.io – Has a list of about 500 more parties you can attend.

If I am missing something I should be at or if you want to say hi next week you can catch me on twitter at @jgamblin.
