Who needs long sessions to learn about security?

Tech Talk track highlights key security issues in 15 min. Visit booth #3109 at RSA Conference.

CA Technologies has something new on tap for this year’s RSA Conference. Taking a page out of the successful Tech Talks that CA held at CA World, we have developed a few Tech Talks for RSA Conference that address some of today’s more pressing security challenges, from insider threats and mobile app security, to protecting digital businesses and securing the Internet of Things.

What’s a Tech Talk?

Tech Talks are short, 15 to 20 minute presentations and discussions about some of the security issues facing organizations today. They’re not meant to be deep dives into an issue, but rather raise awareness and provide the opportunity for follow-on discussion. The CA Tech Talks at RSA Conference will be held right in the CA Technologies booth #3109 in the North Hall.

Here is the schedule and a short summary of each talk. Add this to your agenda or just stop in, have a seat and hear about some of the noteworthy challenges facing security pros today.

Tuesday, March 1 @ 12 p.m.

Defend against data breaches:  It’s been shown that privileged users, and the accounts and credentials they use, are a crucial element in conducting a successful attack.

And then it will review how to stop attackers at multiple points in the data breach lifecycle, preventing damage, loss, and operational disruptions.
