Ideas fresh off the wire

Join Us for Our Third Annual RSA Happy Hour and Christian Science Monitor’s Passcode Security Podcast

Mix and Mingle with Peers or Watch Live Panel Interviews with Security Luminaries

Cybersecurity has broken out of its shell and has hit center stage. Everyone is now aware of how important a matter it has become. Not only was it a major point of contention in recent political events, but it’s also become a threat to the internet’s viability. A successful attack can have wide-reaching and lasting real-world implications.

In this light, one of the biggest congregations of the top players in security will take place next week at this year’s RSA Conference. Industry luminaries will come together in San Francisco and discuss some of the hottest topics in the industry. We can expect this year to have some memorable moments.

For our own part, Highwire is hosting its third annual RSA Conference happy hour but this time with a twist. This year we are combining forces with Christian Science Monitor’s security vertical Passcode, as Sean Sposito, assistant director of content strategy, discusses hot-button items with some of our security clients. Particularly, there will be three sessions spanning the evening:
