When RSA Conference 2018 convenes in San Francisco on April 16th – 20th, over 40,000 attendees will have to divide their attention between hundreds of speakers and sessions.
With so many events to choose from, it’s important to show up with a good idea of which topics are likely to be of key relevance to the industry in the coming year.
Some of Booz Allen’s best and brightest cybersecurity professionals will be among those sharing their expertise at speaker sessions and peer-to-peer events throughout the week. Here are three areas where they’ve chosen to focus their attention.
Evidence-Based Security: The New Top Five Controls
Implementing advanced cyber defense strategies is a waste of time and money if you don’t have the basics in place first.

By analyzing recent attacks and breaches, we’ve identified five foundational controls that will pay dividends.

Cyber attacks aren’t just about your IT systems, they affect every phase of your business process. Thinking holistically about your operations can help prepare you for the next NotPetya.

“Privacy as a stakeholder” is a concept that aims to embed privacy considerations into business decisions at the very beginning of the process, strategically leveraging resources to ensure that the highest risk items get the necessary attention.
To succeed in implementing “privacy as a stakeholder,” follow these keys to success:
When properly executed, “privacy as a stakeholder” can help your organization achieve business goals, reduce costs, protect company reputation, and ensure compliance.
At RSA 2018, each of these issues will be the subject of a session with one of Booz Allen’s top cyber experts. Get more details and learn how you can connect with us in San Francisco during the conference.
