Plan your schedule for the RSA Conference 2024

Our Advisory CISO will be sharing his insights on why you can’t effectively manage risk without the right approach in his session titled “You Can’t Measure Risk”. The session will take place on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, from 2:25 PM to 3:15 PM PT. Save your seat here.

Network, network, network

RSA is a networking gold mine, where you’ll have the chance to rub elbows with industry peers, pick the brains of experts, and maybe even find your next business partner. Don’t be a wallflower – attend those networking events, jump into discussions, and strike up conversations with your fellow attendees. You never know who you might meet or what opportunities may arise. Bring plenty of business cards or have your contact information ready to share at a moment’s notice. You never know who you might meet or what opportunities may arise.

To make the most of your networking opportunities, it’s a good idea to book some meetings in advance. RSA can be quite hectic once you’re there, and having a few pre-scheduled meetings can help ensure that you connect with the people you most want to meet. Consider reaching out to key contacts, industry leaders, or potential partners before the conference to secure a time to chat. Orca can help you secure your entire cloud estate to prioritize risks and achieve compliance. Our executives would love to show you the Orca platform in person. Book a meeting here
