At RSA Conference, Analysts Will Focus On Security’s ‘Big Issues’
Tim Wilson discusses some security analyst’s predictions for what the hot topics at this year’s RSA Conference will be. Cloud security will be one of the major topics covered since security is a key factor in a company’s decision to adopt cloud technology.

Those shifts will be toward next-generation technologies, in the business expectations of security managers, and in the ownership of security.
