RSA 2019 Recap: FBI Director Christopher Wray Says Cyber Threats Have Reached An Unseen Level

RSA 2019 is underway in San Francisco. On Tuesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray called out China as the number one counterintelligence threat. The security community reacts.

It’s that time of year again. RSA has taken over San Francisco. Here’s what you missed:

The theme of this year’s conference is “better,” with many cybersecurity experts saying that it’s time to bring trust back to the industry. It all comes as FBI Director Christopher Wray says China has become the number one counterintelligence threat.

“The scope, the breadth, the depth, the sophistication, the diversity of the threats is unlike anything we’ve had in our lifetimes,” said Wray.

Vendors at RSA are buzzing about artificial intelligence, machine learning, threat intelligence and other emerging technologies.

“Threats are evolving,” said Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of Santa Clara, Calif.-based Malwarebytes. “Ransomware was really big a couple of years ago, crypto mining continues to be big.”

Vendors say the opportunity is huge for channel partners to help bring trust back to the market.

“We see three and half times more data in the cloud put in the cloud now between 2018 and 2020, so the role for the various resellers and providers is really strong to put the capabilities in the cloud,” said Greg Jensen, senior principal director of cloud security at Oracle.

“We have 5G coming, which we refer to as the industrial revolution

So, when you look at 5G not only does that represent new challenges in security, but it also creates new tools that we are taking advantage of to make 5G better

Nearly 50,000 attendees are in attendance at RSA this year.
