The RSA Conference in San Francisco saw the gathering of 45,000 information security professionals who were eager to reconnect with their peers after the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference's atmosphere was vibrant, and Generative AI emerged as a popular topic. However, many experts are still hesitant to adopt these tools in the security industry as they struggle with critical thinking and data loss, posing a risk to companies grappling with data protection.

Exposure management solutions received a warm reception at the conference as they help organizations communicate risk to corporate boards more effectively. By aggregating resilience data for a contextual score, these tools can highlight specific threats and communicate an organization's security posture to address them. The emergence of continuous threat exposure management (CTEM) programs has improved communication between business and technical teams.

The keynote presentations were a significant highlight of the conference. Rohit Ghai, CEO of RSA Security, addressed the continuing challenge of identity-based attacks, while U.S. Ambassador at Large for Cyberspace & Digital Policy Nathaniel Fick stressed the need for NATO to extend deterrence into the digital world. A panel discussion also explored the topic of DDoS attacks on critical infrastructure.

The RSA Conference provided a valuable opportunity for security professionals to exchange ideas and perspectives with their peers. It reminded attendees of the importance of in-person conversations and networking in an industry that is continually evolving.
