The RSA Archer GRC Summit (June 10-12) has become the benchmark learning event for the GRC industry and we couldn’t be prouder of that reputation. This year, we are taking the RSA GRC Archer Summit back to its original location of Phoenix, AZ where more than 1,000 GRC practitioners are expected to join us for three days of speakers, sessions, and countless networking opportunities.
This year’s theme, “Harnessing Risk. Exploring Opportunity,” will focus on empowering organizations to harness and exploit risk to gain competitive advantage with a “Risk Intelligence” approach that offers better visibility, enhanced analysis and improved metrics to drive intelligent, streamlined actions that enable businesses to move quickly and predictably.
Now in its eleventh year, the RSA Archer GRC Summit is larger than ever with over 56 RSA and customer-led breakout sessions and prominent keynote speakers including RSA Executive Chairman, Art Coviello, Former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, General Wesley Clark, and United States Navy Fighter Pilot, Carey Lohrenz. Working groups, technical training, tutorials and product roadmap sessions round out the agenda.
In addition, many of RSA’s valued partners, including KPMG, Qualys, Accenture, CSC, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, Accuvant, IBS (Integrated Business Solutions), OpenSky and WhiteHat, will also be in attendance to showcase their complementary solutions.
Aside from all the great content and networking opportunities, nothing makes the RSA Archer GRC Summit as special as the passion of our customers. Nearly 80% of the breakout sessions scheduled this year are being led by those customers and are designed to give attendees a great view into implementation best practices, tips and tricks, and strategies they have learned throughout their career.
As this year’s Program Chair and Master of Ceremonies, I am extremely excited for this year’s event. Not only is it our largest one yet, but it promises to be the most exciting, inspiring and productive three days on the GRC calendar. Plus, I’ll do my best to make it entertaining.
Heading back to where it all began in Phoenix, the JW Marriot Desert Ridge Resort & Spa is the perfect backdrop for the frontier spirit of the RSA Archer GRC Summit. Registration remains open and can be found on the 2014 RSA Archer GRC Summit web site. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Phoenix!
