Top Up on Top Technical Tips in Texas!

Blog Post created by James Griffith Employee on Sep 5, 2017

I grew up in England. So to me, my inner perception of Texas was always intertwined with that of America itself. Sort of like America, only more so. Having lived in the USA for 11 years, that has obviously changed and with 10 years in Kansas City I no longer look to the Lone Star State for tips on barbecue! As I think about heading down to RSA Charge in Dallas, my culinary questions run instead to whether the arrival of In-N-Out has displaced Whataburger in the Texan psyche. And conducting a risk assessment on exactly how many Texas-shaped waffles can be safely consumed at breakfast.

Of course, with all the training classes, refreshments, receptions and an awesome evening social at The Rustic planned, I’m starting to think that finding time to resolve such questions is going to be as hard as picking which sessions, keynotes and labs to attend. For my part, I’ve been watching the RSA Archer Suite Advanced Technical track take shape over the summer and I’m really excited to tell you about it. It’s so cool that we have an agenda that is heavy on customer-led sessions. I know you love hearing the hints and tricks our engineers have to share, and we won’t disappoint you this year with sessions on the capabilities of Search and Data Feeds that you might not know about. But I really love seeing what you have been able to do with Archer’s deepest powers too. Want to hear about integrating Archer with Tableau or using handheld devices as a collection point? We’ve got that covered, and much more – the full track agenda is now live. If you are an Archer Admin, or if you are going to become one, you’ll want to hear these sessions, and a registration for Charge will get you there. (Hot tip: that registration fee is still discounted through September 15th).

This year’s RSA Charge represents a personal milestone: my fifth year attending. This event is one of the absolute highlights of the year for me. I love how every year there are new faces - people early in their Archer journeys, eager to learn - alongside familiar faces, back year after year, eager to share their advice and experience. That sense of camaraderie and shared endeavour is what makes Archer what it is: a product, an industry, a community. And there’s no better place to get plugged into that spirit (or re-connected, if you’ve been doing this for a while) than at this year’s RSA Charge, October 17-19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX.

RSA Charge 2017, the premier event on RSA® Business-Driven Security™ solutions, unites an elite community of customers, partners and industry experts dedicated to tackling the most pressing issues across cybersecurity and business risk management. Through a powerful combination of keynote speeches, break-out sessions and hands-on demos, you’ll discover how to implement a Business-Driven Security strategy to help your organization thrive in an increasingly uncertain, high-risk world. Join us October 17 – 19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
