ANKARA (AA) – Annual RSA Conference, a global information security conference, took place on March 4-8, in San Francisco, the U.S.

With more than 500 sessions, the conference hosts top cybersecurity professionals and business leaders to discuss new trends of industry such as cryptography, cloud and application security, according to a statement posted on the website of the conference.

"Every year for the last 28 years, we've looked forward to gathering tens of thousands of the industry's top security professionals at RSA Conference to network, learn, and share," said Linda Gray Martin, director and chief of operations of the conference, which is held in Moscone Convention Center.

Each year, the organizers of the conference determine a unique theme. This year’s theme is "better" which refers to better connections with peers to keep the digital world safe by finding better solutions against cyber threats, according to the statement.

"This year, I’m particularly excited for our new and expanded programs which we hope will keep moving the industry forward for the better," said Martin, adding that empowering the community paved the way for success.

Martin underlined that equal representation and expression of both genders, physical abilities, and religions are welcomed at the conference.

"The RSA Conference is the premier marketplace for the latest technologies which helps industry professionals discover how to make their companies more secure," the statement said.

RSA is one of the first public-key cryptosystems and it stands for the first letters of its developers’ surnames, Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman.
