RSA 2019 — Join Synack at Ground Zero for Trusted Crowdsourced Security

It’s that time of year when security practitioners from around the globe descend upon the Moscone Center to hear from industry leaders on the latest security research and trends. As you plan your week, make sure to check out Synack’s stacked lineup of events. We’ve got an impressive list of speakers and panelists.

This year at RSA, Team Synack will resume our post at Fogo de Chao — just 98 steps from the Moscone Center. Join us at “Ground Zero” for trusted crowdsourced security.

A Sneak Peek from Synack:

  • Trust has become synonymous with security and Synack will explore this theme throughout the week: How are G2000 CISOs building their businesses brand as a trusted partner using crowdsourced security? How can you integrate trust as a continuous practice in your organization?
  • Compliance is top of mind for security practitioners across industries and Synack will dive into how government agencies are using Crowdsourced Penetration Testing (CPT) to fulfill their compliance requirements
  • Network, relax, or just hang out in our lounge at any time for friendly service, an oasis near RSA, complimentary food, WiFi, power, and comfortable couches.
