SAN FRANCISCO—The 2015 RSA Conference from April 20 to 24 brought in more than 30,000 attendees to the Moscone Center here. At every RSA conference, the keynote speakers are a big draw, and the 2015 event was no exception. RSA Security President Amit Yoran kicked off the conference by declaring that most security is broken and that it’s time to move forward. Scott Charney, corporate vice president, Trustworthy Computing, at Microsoft, detailed in his keynote how trust in the cloud needs to evolve, while Art Gilliland, HP senior vice president of enterprise security, discussed lessons learned from the game “Halo” can be applied to the world of cyber-security. A big highlight of the 2015 event was the annual cryptographers panel whose members debated the impact of Edward Snowden as well as the U.S. government’s role in security. The U.S. government was well-represented at this year’s RSA conference, with a keynote delivered by Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, who detailed DHS’ ongoing efforts and also made a plea for organizations not to always use strong encryption. eWEEK takes a look at the sights and events of the 2015 RSA Conference.
