Clearspeed at RSA 2019 Conference

The Clearspeed team successfully completed our debut at RSA, the world’s largest security conference, held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. With over 50,000 attendees, the conference is an exceptional forum to host and promote international educational, professional networking, and awards programs on IT security and human risk challenges and solutions, such as Clearspeed’s RRA voice screening technology. RSA was founded in 1991 as a small cryptography conference. The conferences takes place in the United States, Europe, Asia, and the United Arab Emirates each year.

Throughout the week at RSA, our team was pleased to get the opportunity to build education and awareness on human risk and how it poses a serious threat to the security and wellness of organization, across a full spectrum of industries. Insider threats, specifically human threat, were among the core topics of discussion presented at this year’s conference. The team led many insightful discussions among visitors to our booth on the topic of human risk management and mitigation, and our unique Remote Risk Assessment (RRA) voice screening technologies and the supporting methods used to assess human risk.
