RSA Conference Europe 2012 Keynote Line-up

The Premier League Champions of Information Security Conferences, RSA Conference Europe 2012 is just less than two months away. The keynote line-up has been confirmed and it is looking finger licking good with an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) flavour to it.
  • Jimmy Donal Wales, Founder of Wikipedia
  • Art. Coviello (RSA) Intelligence-Driven Security: The New Model
  • Francis deSouza (Symantec) The Art of Cyber War: Know Thy Enemy, Know Thyself
  • Adrienne Hall (Microsoft) Risks and Rewards in Cloud Adoption
  • Herbert 'Hugh' Thompson Securing the Human: Our Industry’s Greatest Challenge
  • Philippe Courtot (Qualys) Big Data: Big Threat or Big Opportunity for Security?
  • Bruce Schneier (BT) Trust, Security, and Society
  • Joshua Corman "Are We Getting Better?" Why We Don't Know. What We Can Do About It.
  • Misha Glenny The Struggle for Control of the Internet
I always recommend information security professionals, whether new to the profession or industry veterans, attend the #RSA conference. Unlike the majority of security conferences it is not sales focused but educationally focused, so the conference is crammed with countless sessions presented by the best speakers which instil new security thinking and knowledge. The RSA conference is not just a fantastic educational opportunity, it's friendly atmosphere provides the ideal platform to network with peers and world experts, so you can really find out what's happening behind the scenes in the industry, which can be a real eye opener.

I have presented and attended the RSA Conference Europe for many years and plan to be there this year.  If you are attending and want to talk security over a beer or two, and meet a few of the individuals on the above list, just tweet me @securityexpert during the conference week (9th to 11th October 2012).
