RSA CONFERENCE 2023 — The cybersecurity world has descended on San Francisco for this week’s massive RSA Conference USA.

RSA’s Jim Taylor

Jim Taylor, RSA‘s chief product officer, said attendance is “getting back up” to pre-pandemic levels with about 45,000 attendees expected. Stronger together is the theme of RSA Conference 2023.

Collaboration, Info Sharing Big at RSA Conference 2023

“It’s really about collaboration and cooperation, particularly in the information security community,” Taylor said. “We’re seeing in the industry a lot of trends around things like identity, identity fabric and vendor integrations, those kinds of things. So I think zero trust has very much pushed a holistic kind of umbrella view of security, which personally I think is a good thing. I think we should be more of an integrated standards-based, open kind of collaborative community. Security is much better when it works that way.”

Eric Parizo, managing principal analyst at Omdia, said this is the first year since 2019 that it feels like it could be a “normal” year at RSA Conference 2023.

“All the analysts I know are booked all day every day, and have been for weeks,” he said. “For obvious reasons, it’s probably the one time I’m looking forward to crowded exhibit halls and busy sidewalks in and around Moscone Center.”
