RSA Conference 2023 Survival Guide

RSA Conference 2023 Survival Guide

Another year down and it’s time to head west again to the City by the Bay, the Golden City, Fog City, the Paris of the West – San FRANcisco! RSA Conference 2023 is upon us again and I’ve got your RSAC survival guide here. As a gal who has attended and sponsored this conference for many years (and I’m not telling you how many exactly, cause that might give away my age) there’s a few nuggets of information I’d love to share with you.

Ok, ready?

Those shoes were made for walkin’ –  right into the Moscone Center!

May seem like a no-brainer, (we all need reminders, right?), but make sure you wear comfortable shoes, you may be on your feet for hours at a time! Not only is there a lot of walking around town to be done, the taxis and shared rides will be a scarce commodity. Plus, did you know the Moscone Center has more than 1 million square feet (92,903 square meters) of exhibit and meeting space, making it one of the largest convention centers on the west coast!

It’s always a good idea to plan your exhibit hall experience ahead of time and don’t forget you’ll need an Expo pass to enter. You are in luck though, because Laminar has a few passes, and we want to give you a FREE pass to the Expo Hall, a value of $50. OR,  if you are looking for the full monty and need full access to all of the conference sessions and conference-sponsored activities, we can offer you $150 off that pass!

FREE Expo Pass Offer (Valued at $50):: 52ELAMINAXP

Full Conference Pass Offer ($150 discount code): 52FCDLAMINA

Pssssst… you can find Laminar at booth #4238 this year in the South Expo area. 🙂 Pre-book a meeting with a Laminar exec here!

Top 5 recommended sessions not to miss…It’s all about the content

We know you are busy and with 100’s of sessions to choose from at RSAC we decided to collaborate with one of our partners, Cyber Defense Group (CDG) to give you the top 5 recommended sessions to attend. These sessions are not to miss, as they are all about building your cyber resilience as it relates to your data in the cloud. We are excited to share that CEO, Lou Rabon has done the research FOR YOU, and below are his top 5 recommended sessions!


What 40 CEOs Told Us About Building Cyber Resilience  |  Thursday, Apr. 27, 2023  |  9:40 AM – 10:30 AM PT

This session looks to be a great temperature-check to see how CEOs are thinking about cyber in the year to come.  A number of breach-affected CEOs were interviewed, and the session is led by two well-credentialed speakers.  Effective cyber programs are led from the top, so this should be an informative session.

DFIR Evidence Collection and Preservation for the Cloud  |  Thursday, Apr. 27, 2023  |  1:00 PM – 1:50 PM PT

Forensics is near and dear to my heart, so this one interests me.  It’s also very under-represented in the cyber realm, usually conducted by specialized firms with former law enforcement resources.  The cloud is a whole different animal, and most organizations are not prepared to collect evidence in case of a breach or insider threat.  This session should help with the configuration settings that are necessary when (not if) forensic evidence collection is necessary in your cloud environment.

Diving into the Tenacious Threats of Cloud Data Lakes  |  Thursday, Apr. 27, 2023  |  2:10 PM – 3:00 PM PT

Data lakes are all the rage, especially with ML/AI as the latest hotness.  The problem is: what is in that data lake?  What are the privacy and security implications of having PII and sensitive data floating around in that murky lake?  This is another well-credentialed panel that can shed some light into this area, and what to pay attention to as these large pools of data are set up and mined for information.  They are even providing a downloadable template to assist, this should be helpful!

Cloud Threat Gamification: Lessons Learned and How to Set One Up  |  Thursday, Apr. 27, 2023  |  8:30 AM – 9:20 AM PT

We love gamification, and we often use it for our tabletops since it’s a great way to engage engineers (who normally want nothing to do with tabletops!).    The two speakers defend some pretty large environments, so it should be interesting to hear their perspectives on what to concentrate on when running these exercises.

The Megatrends Driving Cloud Adoption – and Improving Security – for All  |  Wednesday, Apr. 26, 2023  |  8:30 AM – 9:20 AM PT

Cloud migrations are soaring, and traditional security doesn’t apply.  This talk, by the venerable Phil Venables, presents 8 megatrends that are driving cloud security.  The premise is that the cloud is more secure than on-prem environments, and this talk will illustrate the best practices that are necessary to ensure the most secure cloud migration and/or configuration.
