The RSA Conference is an ongoing sequence of IT security conferences that are held around the world as well throughout the entire year.

About 45,000 professionals in cybersecurity attend one of these events every year. They are hosted across Asia, United States, UAE and Europe.

RSA conferences are held throughout The United States, Europe, Asia as well as Asia, Europe and the United Arab Emirates each year. The conference also offers professional, educational, and awards programmes designed to aid cybersecurity professionals and companies keep up-to-date with the most effective methods of fighting cybercrime.
