Next week around 45,000 people will be navigating to downtown San Francisco for one of the biggest security conferences all year. With this year’s theme being “Better.”, companies will pull out all the stops to try and show customers that they are the best.
There are countless things to do during this week long conference, but here are my top 5.
There are over 500 exhibitors distributed throughout the north and south halls of the Moscone Center. As you walk through these huge halls, different companies will try to draw you into their booth with prizes, food, etc. While these goodies are a nice perk, make sure you take the time to get familiar with the company, their products, and ask questions. Many companies will be providing demos of their products and in-booth speaking sessions, including Oracle! This year Oracle has three booths, each focusing on different aspects of our security portfolio, so make sure to stop by!
During RSA, companies put on networking events all around San Francisco. Whether it be a happy hour, a fancy dinner, or even an elaborate party, this is a great opportunity to network with peers. While conference goers are busy attending sessions and visiting booths during the day, these networking events are a nice way to relax and have fun at the end of the day.
While there are many different sessions to choose from, there are also thousands of people that will try to attend. To beat the rush and secure a spot for the sessions and keynotes that interest you, make sure you arrive early. Be sure to arrive early to these Oracle sessions:
Tuesday, March 5th 10:40am -11:10am - Briefing Center, South Hall
Presenter: Laurent Gil, Security Evangelist, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)
Thursday, March 7th 8:00am - 8:50am - Moscone West 2003
