RSA Conference 2017 Exhibits - Is Your Artificial Intelligence Only 1.0?

If you walked the RSA Conference floor(s) in San Francisco this year, you probably needed to sit down a few times in passing the 680 vendors - not because of the distance or construction as much as from the sensory overload and Rubik's cube challenge of matching vendors with the problems they address. Since Anton Chuvakin already stole my thunder by declaring there was no theme [http://blogs.gartner.com/anton-chuvakin/2017/02/22/rsa-2017-whats-the-theme/] with such effective snark it made me j

Losing My Hair at RSA Conference – On Purpose and For a Great Cause!

I'm excited to be shaving my head at Shaves that Save at the RSA Conference US 2017 [http://r-7.co/ShavesThatSave]—the second annual event where information security professionals go bald to raise money to fund a cure for childhood cancer and the St Baldrick's Foundation.  I hope you can join us a for a whole lot of fun—head shaving, a great DJ, a bar to benefit St Baldrick's, and an appearance by Stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion.

Set Up for Success at BSidesLV's Proving Ground

One of the most nerve-wrecking things a person can do is give a talk to a group of people. As a matter of fact, approximately 3 out of 4 people suffer from speech anxiety. This is further exacerbated in an industry and community like ours where many of us are introverts and/or suffer from "imposter syndrome". We think we aren't as smart or good at something as we actually are. We often feel like someone else has done a better job explaining a theory or area in information security than we ever c

UNITEDSummit 2016: An attendee's perspective

Editor's Note: This is a guest post from Mike Perez, Implementation Engineer for Cryptzone. Since my initial introduction to Rapid7's UNITED Summit customer conference in 2015, I had been looking forward to the opportunity to attend again. The conference is a mixture of good fun, great food, and excellent content in my hometown of Boston at a vibrant venue (the Seaport Hotel).  The event covers Rapid7's product line and how the offerings can help their customers.  However, in my opinion, Rapid7

#UNITEDSummit 2016: Empowerment

Empowerment. It was the theme for this year's UNITED Summit and each talk, training, intensive and networking break gave attendees the chance to learn about the challenges and opportunities that impact professionals to help drive their security program forward. And that feeling of empowerment was truly felt in the closing keynote from Chris Nickerson [https://twitter.com/indi303], CEO of Lares. Through colorful analogy, Chris explained the difference between and power behind choosing versus dec

User Cons: The Celebrities Amongst Us

Celebrity is an odd sensation. Rooms filled with seemingly normal people can suddenly shift into a buzz of excitement, anticipating the approaching time-slot of a well-known figure. We've all been there, and typically it's a movie star, former President, or Fortune 100 CEO in a mock turtleneck. Celebrity, however, comes in all different shapes and sizes. And in 1998 there was really only one major celebrity you cared about: Those that might not recognize the beaked goodness that is Furby, let
