RSA, one of the world’s biggest security conferences, comes back this year in San Francisco from April 16th to the 20th. Some of the biggest topics to tackle this year are everything from AI to machine learning and blockchain.
A panel on cryptography is offered at RSA to help give clarity to a rather new discipline and to offer a look at the future of information security. Dr. Hugh Thompson of the RSA Conference will discuss AI with other panelists to talk through whether artificial intelligence and its applications will have the potential to help or hurt humanity.
Other noted speakers at this year’s conference include secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith, and Cisco’s SVP and Chief Security and Trust Officer John Stewart.
Stewart’s talk, called “Raise the Bar and Make an Impact,” looks into how businesses can better secure their network. Stewart will look at the current state of cybersecurity and see how things like security are able to create positive impact in the world.
Cisco has also just released news on its security services, helping protect users from the last 1% of threats. Cisco SVP of Product for Security Business Group Jeff Reed writes, “Securing the endpoint is as critical as the network, and one needs to inform the other to eliminate blind spots.”
The Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints is a cloud-managed endpoint security solution that can help prevent attacks and find threats. New capabilities have been added to this, including sophisticated detection and protection that can stop threats like ransomware and cryptomining, and threat investigation with Cisco Vulnerability.
For email, Cisco has also recently unveiled new security services to help prevent email identity deception. These services aid in preventing phishing, protecting brands from fraud, and maintaining email governance. New machine learning capabilities in Cisco Email Security also help block identity deception attacks.
