How to Make Friends and Find Your Way at RSA 2018

March 19, 2018

Are you hitting the road and heading to RSA 2018 in San Francisco this April? We know this event is huge and it can be a tad bit overwhelming trying to start a conversation with perfect strangers. So we’re here to help. We’ve got some great people on our team and we want you to know them.

When you come by our booth, attend our party, or just bump into any of the folks from SecureAuth, here are some easy ways to strike up a conversation with our team members.

Jeff Kukowski, CEO

As the leader of SecureAuth, he sees the big picture. If you’re looking to strike up a conversation with Kukowski, consider asking him how stronger security and better user experience must not be mutually exclusive. If you want to get to know the man behind the CEO title, ask him about skydiving or cross-country motorcycle touring.

Nick Mansour, CRO

Now Mansour has been in enterprise software sales for 18 years – so it’s safe to say he’s seen how this space has evolved through the years. So why not ask him about it? We know he’s got an interesting perspective for cyber security – so find out what made him stick around. As for something interesting to learn about him, ask him about his favorite live music events.

Mark Zembal, CMO

Security and Identity might have been separate in the past – but we don’t think so anymore. Zembal has the message down for how Identity Security Automation finally brings network, end-point and identity security together and why that’s imperative to businesses today. Looking to talk about something not security related? Ask him about running marathons – especially bucket list destinations races like Paris and Athens.

Chris “Sully” Sullivan, CISO

Now, if you were to run into Sully, ask him about the objective behind creating the new category of Identity Security Automation. It’s exciting times over at SecureAuth and we want you in on what’s to come in this category. Once you get all of the formalities out of the way, ask him about the joys of owning a boat (or two).

Rohit Khanna, CCO
At the center of what we do at SecureAuth is our customers. If you happen to run into Rohit Khanna, our Chief Customer Officer, ask him about what customer success means to us and how important it is in everything that we do. Wanting more to chat about? Ask him about making modern houses in the bay area.

Stephen Newman, SVP Product

Newman is at the forefront of Product and has the responsibility of pairing Identity-centric products and Security-centric products together. If you get the chance, be sure to ask Newman just how we are bringing the two together and if there’s any hints he can drop regarding the future of the product roadmap. As for additional small talk, ask him how he went from designing speaker systems for a living to Products for a cyber security firm.

Robert Block, SVP Identity

Block is at the head of the Identity business. As we’ve brought Identity and Security together – we’re not losing or taking anything away from either. Instead, the goal is to make each better. He’s the one to ask about how Identity and Security strengthen each other. If you’re looking for other small talk, ask him about his favorite golfers and courses he’s played. Maybe even give him an O-H – you’re sure to get an I-O in return.

Darrin Ingram, VP Solutions Engineer

Ingram leads the team of folks from both Identity and Security which is key in bringing the two together. He’s the one to ask how Identity Security Automation is fusing Identity and Security together in a way never before possible. With that, you might find out what sets us apart from others and those that may have had this idea in the past. Something to chat about not work related? Ask him what he did for a career prior to technology. We all have different paths we took to get where we are today – why not share?

Mike Desai, SVP of Business and Corporate Development

With more than 20 years of leadership experience in the technology and software security industry, Desai has seen a lot of change through the years in cyber security and how businesses have adapted to them. Be sure to ask him his thoughts on how we plan to leverage Identity Security to accelerate Digital Transformation. Additionally, you might want to ask him about why in the world he’s running 1,000 miles this year. You heard right, running.

Do you feel more prepared? Enjoy your time in San Francisco and we look forward to learning more about you and your security needs!
