Risk & Repeat: RSA Conference 2017 predictions and expectations

Listen to this podcast

In this episode of SearchSecurity's Risk & Repeat podcast, editors discuss their plans, expectations and predictions for RSA Conference 2017 next week in San Francisco.

Ransomware, machine learning and internet of things security are just a few of the topics and trends on tap for RSA Conference 2017 next week in San Francisco.

The world's biggest information security conference officially kicks off Monday in San Francisco, and this year's event will feature a number of expert speakers, including Gen. Keith Alexander, former director of the National Security Agency; Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer at Microsoft; Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Tex.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee; and McAfee CEO Chris Young. Major themes at RSA Conference 2017 will include the growing threat of ransomware, the insecurity (and possible regulation) of IoT devices, the potential of machine learning and concerns over government security and cyber attribution.

What will be the dominant storyline at RSA Conference 2017? How will security vendors approach new threats like the Mirai IoT botnet? Will we see more controversy and debate around encryption technology and "going dark"?

In this episode of SearchSecurity's Risk & Repeat podcast, editors Rob Wright and Peter Loshin discuss those questions as well as their plans and predictions for this year's show.
