RSA Conference 2019 Videos: Day 1

The RSA Conference is an interesting mix of security pundits, vendors, analysts and reporters, all in attendance (ostensibly) for the same reason: to better understand the current state of cybersecurity and discern what the future holds. This year’s event was no different.

As we do each year, the crack team at Security Boulevard interviewed a cross-section of the industry for an insider’s perspective, which we’ve compiled in a number of videos on our new sister site, Digital Anarchist. The following is the first in a few roundups of those interviews from RSAC 2019.

Stay tuned for further video roundups from the show—after all, we conducted a whopping 71 interviews, so there’s plenty to work with. Meanwhile, here’s the first batch. Enjoy!
