RSA Conference, San Francisco
Day 1: Tuesday, April 8th

This is my first year at RSA, and I really had no clue just how large it was. The expo floor is massive, and it’s filled with near-Interop-sized booths and hooks. To kick the day off, I caught the morning keynotes in the main hall, then took some time finding our partners and other folks on the expo floor. I attended some peer to peer breakouts, but due to the nature of those sessions, I’m not going to publish any information from those. Aside from that, here’s how Day 1 went… (more…)

Well, I’m getting more and more excited about the upcoming Security Bloggers Meetup at RSA.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of having a brief run-in with Alan Shimel and Ryan Russell just this week, so I can cross them off my ‘yet to meet’ list and add them to the ‘looking forward to seeing again’ list.

With my recent addition of (and addiction to) Twitter, I’ve had the opportunity to chat and swap semi-meaningless banter with a variety of other SBN members, especially the ‘glue’ of the event, Jennifer Leggio, and some of the main ‘characters’… a fitting term I’d say… including Martin McKeayThe Hoffmeister,  Rich Mogull, Ryan Naraine, Mister Brad Feld, the second Jack Daniel I now know, plus our recently-crowned greatest live-tweeter everBen J and several others- I’m still learning who’s who and who’s going to the Meetup at RSA. Sorry if I’ve missed anyone, but please hop on the SBN site and check out the latest blogs and member links.

You’ll definitely be seeing more info and updates from me as we get closer to RSA, and I plan to try and blog regularly while there to let you all know what shenangians are going on. Until then, here’s a little more info to stay in the loop!

Want to know more? You can find more blog links on SBN and a fit-to-twit list at (the other) Jennifer’s Security Twit post.

Want to watch the event Live? If you’re a regular reader of my blog, or any of the other SBN group, you’ll get a chance to join us virtually. Evidently they (or I guess ‘we’) will be streaming live with conferencing and video blogs. Check this link for details on live event streams. Guaranteed to be entertaining!

We’ve all been watching some of the pioneering NAC vendors domino down over the past several months. The Lockdown tumble has some questioning the industry again, and as Alan notes, these happenings fuel the fires of NAC’s nay-sayers. (In my opinion, it’s like throwing metal onto open flame… may affect the metal, won’t feed the flame, makes for great steaks). (more…)

I wanted to take a moment and send shout-outs (as we say) to a couple of fellow bloggers. I’m a baby blogger, so I apprecited the recent posts and mentions, from Alan Shimel on his blog StillSecure… and Augusto Paes de Barros (former Brazilian ISSA President) on his blog Security Balance. (more…)
