09 Nov Live cyber-crisis to be re-enacted at RSA Conference in Abu Dhabi
RSA® Conference has announced a number of pre-conference activities to take place on November 14th at RSA Conference in Abu Dhabi. The pre-conference agenda will be comprised of an exciting Learning Lab that is based on a cyber-crisis live exercise scenario in addition to a Security Foundations Seminar.
The conference will create a live cyber-crisis exercise designed to affect the resilience of technology as well as human life and public safety across borders. In partnership with Atlantic Council, the Lab is a live scenario exercise designed to explore how governments and the private sector, amongst others, can work together to respond to a crisis.
The Security Foundations Seminar will provide attendees a broad understanding on some of the most important security principles, and is for practitioners looking for a holistic view of the current state of information security. The seminar will cover important security principles and current issues, laying a foundation to be further discussed during RSA Conference 2016 Abu Dhabi.
The sessions will be hosted by a number of speakers from leading companies like RSA, Trend Micro, SWIFT, PA Consulting, Palo Alto Networks and Wipro.
“With cyber security becoming a high priority in the region, there is an increasing demand for professionals who have a deep understanding of the industry,” said Linda Gray Martin, General Manager for RSA Conferences. “The aim of the pre-conference sessions is to provide attendees crucial insight on cyber security from subject matter experts and the chance to be a part of an exciting cyber-crisis exercise that will give them first-hand experience, skills and knowledge to apply in the field.“
The Learning Lab is open to Full Conference passes only and the Security Foundations Seminar is open to Full Conference passes and Visitor passes.
