The security of your organization directly correlates with your ability to transform and achieve your business objectives. Microsoft can help you make that happen, with our powerful combination of large-scale data and threat intelligence, end-to-end protection, and responsible AI. ​

Recently at Microsoft Secure, we shared our latest innovations for securing and governing AI and announced the generative AI solution for cyberdefenders: Microsoft Copilot for Security. We’re excited to talk with you about how to bring these innovations to life in your organization at the RSA Conference (RSAC), May 6 to 9, 2024, in San Francisco.

At the conference, we’ll demonstrate how to secure and govern AI and benefit from end-to-end protection with solutions across the Microsoft Security portfolio, including Microsoft Copilot for Security. We’ll show you how we help security teams build their skills faster to protect their organizations.

Join us a day early, on Sunday, May 5, 2024, at Microsoft Pre-Day to kick-off RSA Conference 2024, and hear directly from our Microsoft Security Business leaders, including Vasu Jakkal, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Security Business, and Charlie Bell, Executive Vice President, Microsoft Security. Plus, view live demos at a variety of Microsoft sessions happening throughout the conference in breakout rooms and at our booth #6044N.

Microsoft Pre-Day: Hear from Microsoft Security product leaders

Start the conference on a high note by joining us for the Microsoft Pre-Day at the Microsoft Security Hub beginning at 4:00 PM PT on Sunday, May 5, 2024. For chief information security officers (CISOs) and cybersecurity professionals, we invite you to dive deeper into the latest AI announcements, learn about new product capabilities, and gain peace of mind of how to secure AI as you introduce the technology into your organization.

Vasu Jakkal and other Microsoft leaders will share our perspectives on topics like AI-powered security, innovations in end-to-end protection, and solutions to secure AI. We’ll also be joined by Microsoft customers who will share how they have been successful in their security evolution.

Pre-Day will continue with a Q&A session with Vasu Jakkal, Charlie Bell, and other leaders. They’ll reflect on the latest developments in cybersecurity, AI, and how the global community of cyber professionals can work together for a more secure future.

The conclusion of Pre-Day will be an evening reception at 6:00 PM PT, where you will have an opportunity to network with other professionals over drinks and appetizers.

Microsoft keynote and sessions: Get valuable insights and inspiration

Once the RSA Conference begins, you’ll have several opportunities to attend demos and connect one-on-one with Microsoft product experts. Mark your calendar on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, to visit our keynote in the official conference line up from 3:40 PM PT to 4:00 PM PT at Moscone West. Vasu Jakkal will share insights on how AI is evolving, its impact on the threat landscape, and what every organization should do to keep it safe.

While there is a lot of hype around AI, most security professionals are taking a risk-averse approach. This means that employees will find workarounds to use generative AI. Join Brian Fielder, Vice President of Security Engineering at Microsoft, who will talk about Microsoft’s approach to securing and governing AI.  You will walk away with practical guidance on governing AI, how to ensure data privacy, and compliance.
