Discussions, Keynotes and Case Studies Will Focus on Business-Driven Security – a New Paradigm for Forward-Looking Organizations

RSA CHARGE, NEW ORLEANS, LA, October 25, 2016 --

To help security professionals harness the innovative power of thought leaders, industry experts and the RSA community, RSA, a Dell Technologies business, is hosting its third annual RSA Charge conference in New Orleans, LA, on October 25-27, 2016, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

RSA Charge will help attendees address the most crucial challenges facing security professionals today by bringing together practioners, business leaders and industry influencers to share best practices and engage in hands-on training. They will discuss how forward-thinking organizations are employing business-driven security to transform their organizations and take command of their evolving security posture.

“This past year has been one of great change and digital transformation. RSA continues to deliver features and functionality to help security leaders, business leaders and their teams address challenges of the modern workforce and support digital transformation,” said Grant Geyer, Senior Vice President, Products, RSA. “We not only enjoy sharing them with our customers at RSA Charge, we also take time there to talk to our customers and learn what they need to be successful – both now and in the future.”

Conference Highlights Include:
