Welcome to the RSA Wrapup show. Except it’s not a wrapup where we talk about the things we saw and did so much as a discussion of our very different views of what the RSA experience was for us. This was Zach’s first RSA, Martin has been to half a dozen and Rich has been coming to the show since he was a young pup. And just as the three of us come at many news stories from different directions, we also view the RSA Convention very differently from one another.
As long time veterans of the event, Martin and Rich see a lot of the behind the scenes action and spend a considerable amount of time in meetings with vendors and other security professionals, especially Rich, who spends almost every waking moment either in a meeting or running to the next meeting. For Martin, it was the first time he’s attended RSA as a vendor in addiion to his blogging and podcasting duties. And Zach’s experience as delegate are close to on par with what the average RSA going is going to see. Which frustrated him greatly.
If you’re already tired of hearing about RSA and everything that goes on there, you may want to skip this podcast. But if you’re curious to hear a little bit about what it’s like to attend the single biggest convention in the security industry, you’ll want to listen. We actually believe this is one of the better podcasts we’ve done recently.
