Robert reporting from the RSA Conference

I just completed a freelance assignment covering the RSA Conference 2009 for RSA.

I wrote 17 stories that were posted on the conference Web site during the week long event April 20-24. I interviewed keynoters and wrote stories on several of the breakout sessions. Here are just a few:

"Lax security can invite lawsuits" is about a panel discussion, moderated by CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, about legal issues related to e-discovery and company liability for data breaches.

"Innovation Sandbox winner announced" is about a competition among early-stage tech security companies who presented their innovations and business plans to a panel of judges.

"Social networks present new risks for malware, ID theft, etc." is about how people let down their guard when visiting "friends" on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.

"Tackling Cyber Security Challenges Today" was a very interesting panel about how the U.S. government, including the National Security Agency, Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security, are trying to protect cyberspace from attack.

"The 'MythBusters' stars next challenge: Is code unhackable?" Is about the Discovery Channel show whose co-hosts gave a keynote on the last day of RSA Conference 2009.
