RSA Conference Europe 2013 Details
We’re excited to announce we’re bringing RSA Conference Europe 2013 to Amsterdam in October 2013, where we’ll be discussing security issues from both a global and European perspective.
RSA Conference is helping drive the information security agenda worldwide with annual industry events in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Throughout its history, RSA Conference has consistently attracted the world’s best and brightest in the field, creating opportunities for Conference attendees to learn about IT security’s most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers, luminaries and emerging and established companies. As the IT security field continues to grow in importance and influence, RSA Conference plays an integral role in keeping security professionals across the globe connected and educated.
RSA developed RSA Conference in 1991 as a forum for cryptographers to gather and share the latest knowledge and advancements in the area of internet security. Today RSA Conference and related, RSA Conference branded activities, are still managed by RSA, The Security Division of EMC, with the support of the industry. Content is selected by an independent Program Committee, comprised of information security industry practitioners and other related professionals, from an open Call for Speakers.
We’re excited to announce we’re bringing RSA Conference Europe 2013 to Amsterdam in October, where we’ll be discussing security issues from both a global and European perspective. Delegates will be able to attend keynote sessions presented by leading information security industry experts and guest speakers.
