Mingis on Tech: Lessons from RSA 2018

This year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco had a lot of ground to cover. Cybersecurity, of course. Fending off ransomware attacks. Building security best practices into employee training.

But, according to CSO’s Steve Ragan, the hottest topics at the 2018 conference were this month’s looming GDPR deadline and blockchain, blockchain, blockchain. (In fact, the two are often part of the same conversation.)

Ragan, who attended RSA, spoke with Computerworld Executive Editor Ken Mingis about what he learned, with a special focus on the May 25 GDPR deadline and what companies are scrambling to do to protect their data.

GDPR stands for General Data protection Rule and is being rolled out in the European Union. But it also applies to U.;S. companies who do business in Europe, most of whom aren’t yet ready for the new rules. That, said Ragan, is why the new rules were such a hot topic at RSA: companies aren’t sure what data needs to be protected, or how best to do so, or even where that data is on their network.
