AMSTERDAM -- October 2, 2013

RSA® Conference (, the world’s leading information
security conferences and expositions, today announced its complete line-up of
keynote speakers for the 14th annual RSA Conference Europe 2013, taking place
from 29 – 31 October 2013, at Amsterdam RAI, Netherlands.

With over 60 sessions spanning 10 hours, RSA Conference Europe 2013 will
connect attendees with industry experts sharing intelligence from real-world
case studies and years of experience. The Conference’s eight keynote sessions
offer a glimpse into security’s future and compelling insights from experts
responsible for protecting the world’s biggest organizations and events.

In addition to previously announced sessions focusing on technology and
security of the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games with Lord Sebastian
Coe and Mark Hughes, CEO, BT Security, this year’s keynotes hone in on two
themes: data and disruption.

Attendees interested in big data’s transformative effects on information
security and responding to next generation threats through security
intelligence should not miss Tuesday’s keynote sessions “Big Data Transforms
Security” with Art Coviello, Executive Chairman, RSA, The Security Division of
EMC and Amit Yoran, Senior Vice President, RSA, The Security Division of EMC.
Later on Tuesday Stephen Trilling, SVP, Chief Technology Officer, Symantec
Corporation, is sharing a new paradigm for protecting assets against targeted,
modern attackers and threats that have moved beyond traditional defenses.
Those looking for more knowledge to move beyond a policy-driven security model
into a data-driven approach can learn from Wednesday’s session “Data-Driven
Security – Where’s the Data?” delivered by Wolfgang Kandek, Chief Technology
Officer, Qualys.

Information security professionals understand that the industry is
experiencing a disruptive evolutionary period. The next generation is now and
the best and brightest must respond to keep pace with emerging threats and new
vulnerabilities. On Tuesday, attendees will hear from Mike Reavey, Senior
Director, Trustworthy Computing, Microsoft, on “A New Era of Operational
Security in Online Services.” This presentation will cover how security must
evolve to support the growing number of cloud services fueling the modern
enterprise. On Wednesday, Joshua Corman, Director of Security Intelligence,
Akamai Technologies, will cover the emerging role of DevOps (development +
operations) in security. Mr. Corman will discuss his beliefs that DevOps is a
game-changer and may be the end of security as we know it. Finally, Hugh
Thompson, Programme Committee Chair, RSA Conference, will deliver a session on
Wednesday, titled, “Degrees of Freedom: Rethinking Security” which will
demonstrate what security professionals can learn from mathematics to define
security variables that matter most.

"As IT Security becomes increasingly critical to business continuity and
customer trust, RSA Conference Europe continues toprovidein-depth education
and guidance on new security trends, technologies and customer experience to
IT professionals. By providing innovative content
