Why the RSA Event Is Important

RSA is the event everyone who is anyone in cybersecurity generally attends. It gives cybersecurity experts and business professionals the unique opportunity to attend and give presentations, network with colleagues and competitors, learn the latest, and promote their own technology or solutions.

This year’s theme at the RSAC is Transform. There will be many high-profile industry keynote speakers discussing all the transformation happening in the business world and in the cybersecurity industry.

Fortinet Speakers at RSAC

This year Fortinet will have executives participating in three different sessions.

Speaking Sessions at RSAC: Wednesday, June 8

1) Session Code: PART2-W01: The Importance of a Cybersecurity Mesh Platform in Securing Digital Acceleration
At 8:30 a.m. - 9:20 a.m., Fortinet CMO, EVP Products and Solutions John Maddison will be leading a session focused on securing digital acceleration.

The session abstract: Digital acceleration has caused many organizations to move first and later ask how best to secure and manage changes to their networks—creating a perfect storm for attackers and threats looking to exploit silos, complexities, and visibility gaps that naturally arise from such complex and piecemeal environments. To overcome these challenges, a broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity mesh platform like the Fortinet Security Fabric is required.

2) Session Code: HT-W01: Botnets Don't Die: Resurrecting the Dead to Feed on the Living

Also at the same time, 8:30 a.m.–9:20 a.m. on Wednesday, Aamir Lakhani, Senior Security Strategist at Fortinet FortiGuard Labs with be speaking at a session focused on trends in botnets with Joseph Muniz, Security Architect at Cisco. This talk will show that with a bit of creative thinking, attendees can “wake the dead” and control previously believed retired botnets, all equipped with a small army of ready and able hosts. Essentially, participants will learn how to be a cyber necromancer.

Speaking Sessions at RSAC: Thursday, June 9

1) Session Code: KEY-R06S: Mapping the Cybercriminal Ecosystem

On Thursday, June 9 at 2:10 p.m.–3:00 p.m., Derek Manky, Chief Security Strategist & VP Global Threat Intelligence at Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs will be a panelist for a session focused on the cybercriminal ecosystem along with Michael Daniel President and Chief Executive Officer, Cyber Threat Alliance, Tal Goldstein Head of Strategy, Centre for Cybersecurity, World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity, and Amy Hogan-Burney Associate Counsel and General Manager, Digital Crimes Unit, Microsoft. Although cybercrime is now a national security threat, an in-depth understanding of the cybercriminal ecosystem remains limited. The industry needs a holistic map to conduct effective disruption, allocate resources efficiently, and impose meaningful costs on criminal actors. This panel will discuss the World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity’s mapping project, its results to date, and its future.
