As I look back on this past week’s RSA 2012 in San Francisco, I’ve had the opportunity to speak to many enterprise and service provider customers, channel partners, analysts, media (including Fox Business News), investors, and even some of our competitors. BYOD, the transition from physical to virtual to cloud, and IPv4 moving to IPv6 networks came up over and over again. Read More »
On February 29th, Christopher Young, Senior Vice President of Cisco Security, delivered a rousing keynote address at the RSA 2012 conference in San Francisco.

The Global Certification Team is proud to have a presence at RSA 2012 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco!
We will be taking part in several talks and presentations, including the following:
- The CC Forum Interim Steering Committee – This time will be used for both the Terms of Reference working group and the Governance working group.
- Open Group Trusted Technology Forum (O-TTF). The O-TTF is developing a set of best practice requirements and recommendations for Supply Chain Security, that when practically applied, create a business benefit in terms of reduced risk of acquiring tainted or counterfeit products for the technology acquirer.
- “Lock it down or Free it Up” – Special keynote address by Christopher Young, Senior Vice President, Security and Government Group, Cisco – Wednesday February 29, 3:10 p.m.
It’s that time of year again. The annual RSA security show brings together all the major security vendors under one roof for a week of training, announcements, and vendors hawking their latest wares. This year we can expect the usual cadre of legacy security vendors with their stand-alone, siloed products pretending that they now support clouds and mobile workers and BYOD. Booth babes, jugglers, magicians, and flashy giveaways will fill the exhibit halls while vendors play shell games with the security of customers, all adding a cacophony of noise to an already confusing situation.
Amidst all the hoopla and fanfare, however, Cisco Systems, the largest security vendor in the world, will be there with perhaps the only reasonable strategy for securing the networks organizations are creating today.
For retailers and merchants, January 1st, 2012 is the deadline after which all audits for PCI compliance need to be at the Data Security Standards 2.0.
