Roll up, roll up for the biggest IT sec show on earth

The 14th annual RSA Conference is billed as the biggest and the best event in the world for information security professionals. A well-established fixture in the IT pro's calendar, this year's show is held in San Francisco, at the Moscone Convention Center between February 14 and 18.

In fact the scale of the conference makes it one of the more daunting regular events, as the 10,000 expected attendees fight it out to get the latest info on the services and solutions offered by over 250 exhibitors.

One thing's for certain: IT security professionals know that attacks are getting worse in terms of their nature, severity and frequency. In the face of this fast-moving and exponentially growing threat, the RSA event can provide valuable lessons by offering fresh approaches to security.

But all work and no play is no way for IT security pros to behave, or journalists for that matter. We'll keep you up to date will all the breaking news from the show. But there is another key benefit of the RSA bash: it's in San Francisco, one of our favourite towns.
