2017

Since 1930, the official State motto of Texas has been “Friendship”.  This is an apt description of the largest GRC user group in the world, RSA Charge, being held in Dallas, Texas, October 17 – 19. In a previous blog, Steve Schlarman shared an overview and highlights of this year’s event.

 

One of the event tracks this year is “Inspiring Everyone to Own Risk”.  This track brings together risk management practitioners across various industries and geographies to discuss challenges and successes they have experienced managing risk using the RSA Archer Suite of solutions.  This track includes a representative sampling of subjects from each of the Enterprise and Operational Risk Management challenges including: Issues Management, Establishing and maintaining a risk taxonomy and risk register, Self-assessments, Engaging the lines of defense, Third-party risk and performance management, and Business continuity management.

 

We had a great pool of speaker submissions this year.  In some cases, like Issues management and Third-party risk management, we had so many submissions we turned them into panel discussions so that you can benefit from the collective knowledge of multiple experts in these fields.

 

Combined with tracks at RSA Charge focused on regulatory and corporate compliance and information security management, practitioners have an opportunity to learn about each of the most important topics facing Operational Risk Managers today, including how to transform technology risk into Business-Driven Security.  In addition, you will have the opportunity to share ideas and learn from your peers, thought leaders, and specialists in these areas as well as see demonstrations of the RSA Archer Suite.  

 

For those of you that haven’t looked at the complete Agenda, you will find it full of great sessions. We have over 200 submissions from customers and partners, representing over 70 companies from a wide range of industries and geographies, along with a great representation of government agencies.

 

Yes, hosting RSA Charge in the State of Friendship is very apropos.  You will create and renew friendships with attendees with similar challenges and governance perspectives; learn new and innovative risk management methods; and affirm your best practice approaches.

 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Dallas!  If you haven’t registered, do so today.

Join us October 17 – 19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.

I’m excited for this year’s RSA Charge event because, one, it’s Charge, and two, it’s in Texas! I used to live in El Paso and Ft. Worth, Texas so I consider myself an honorary citizen and always enjoy returning.  I also love returning to the RSA Charge conference each year - this ain’t my first rodeo, in fact this is my sixth time attending Charge and each year it gets better. Check out the schedule here and you’ll see what I mean.  RSA Charge 2017 Agenda.  

 

Why do I enjoy RSA Charge so much? I love getting together with my RSA Archer Audit Management and Business Resiliency working groups and discussing how we can make our solutions even better, as well as meeting face-to-face with the RSA Archer Champion Network – real Archer experts. What I’m as excited for this year though is managing the Transforming Compliance presentation track and working with all of the speakers who are preparing to knock your boots off with some phenomenal customer presentations.  It’s the second time I’ve managed one of the presentation tracks, and although it’s a daunting responsibility driving this herd and helping shape the body of knowledge that will be shared with you at Charge, I really enjoy getting to know the speakers and helping them make their presentations the best they can be.

 

The sessions in the Transforming Compliance track (check it out here: Transforming Compliance Track) are designed to help you break that “buckin' bronc” of compliance.  Just listen to these topics – transforming compliance, accelerating the journey, innovating, improving the use of self-assessments, and bringing different compliance functions together.  If those topics don’t blow that stetson hat off your head, then I don’t know what will! Another benefit of attending RSA Charge is not only listening to these amazing topics but being able to mingle afterwards with the presenters, making lasting contacts and staying in touch after the conference with folks who can help make your ride down that long trail using RSA Archer so much better.  It’s a win-win-win!

 

I’ll wrap up by saying if this ain’t enough to get you excited for this amazing event, then in memory of Glen Campbell, head to “Galveston”...I mean Dallas.  Register for RSA Charge, and come to where, "the lights are gonna be shinin’ on you - like a Rhinestone Cowboy" (or Cowgirl of course)!

 

See ya'll at Charge!

Texas. What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the name Texas? The Dallas Cowboys, football and Friday Night Lights? J.R. Ewing, oil rigs and Texas Tea? I like to picture scenes from the Wild West – cattle drives, gamblers playing Texas Hold’em and the dusty streets of Laredo. How about the largest GRC user group coming together to share experiences, learn about the risk and security industry and make new connections? They say everything is bigger in Texas and this year – we aim to make Texas proud.

That’s right, RSA Charge is right around the bend charging toward us like an old stagecoach careening through the sage brush and cacti of the Texas countryside. Hosted in beautiful Dallas, this year’s event is full of best practices, lessons learned, tips and tricks and the best GRC community experience this side of the Rio Grande – actually ANY side of the Rio Grande. With this being the 14th year of the Archer community gathering, this could very well be the most varied and strong collection of content we have ever had.

For those of you that haven’t looked into the Agenda, you will find it full of great sessions. We had a tremendous amount of submissions this year - over 200 submissions from customers and partners. After long hours and some tough decisions, we have rustled up the best of the best. Over 70 companies from a wide range of industries and geographies, along with a great representation of government agencies, are participating in our sessions this year.   We have a fantastic mix of old-timers – veteran presenters from Bank of the West, Citizens Bank, Humana, US Bank and others – and newcomers (just don’t call them tenderfoot!) – on the Agenda. Our customers’ stories, our sponsors’ insights and our product vision and roadmap will be on full display.

Just a few of the highlights:

  • We will have keynote addresses from RSA’s Rohit Ghai, Grant Geyer and Zully Ramzan. 
  • The RSA Archer SuperSession gives us the opportunity to gather as a community with keynotes and discussions highlighting RSA Archer’s vision and product strategy and industry perspectives.  As usual, we will also recognize our leading customers with our annual awards.
  • Marc Goodman, global security advisor and founder of the Future Crimes Institute will provide his unique perspective on the emerging threats of today’s business environment.
  • Our sponsors will be providing a wealth of industry expertise through their sessions and presence in our exhibition hall.
  • We will have great networking events, birds-of-a-feather lunches, hands-on labs, working groups and plenty of one-on-one time with your peers.

And so much more…

Over the next few weeks, the individual track owners will be giving you some highlights of the agenda through a series of blogs. Stay tuned to learn more about what is charging your way and make sure to register early. I look forward to seeing you in Dallas!
