Summary

The 2015 RSA Conference (RSAC) Innovation Sandbox marks the 10-year anniversary of its conception in North America. This contest has encouraged startups to demonstrate and share their security innovations. The conference leaders select representatives from venture capital firms, entrepreneurs, and large security companies as judges, who thoroughly assess each startup submission. Without these innovative startups, security and risk (S&R) professionals could never keep pace with the never-ending number of vulnerabilities and exploits that emerge with new business models, customer engagement models, and ongoing technology shifts. Today, S&R pros struggle to secure the mobile apps and data of their digital employees. Very soon, they'll have to worry about the security and privacy risks of a universe of interconnected devices — some developed by their own firm and still others that their own employees engage with for work and personal use. Innovation Sandbox finalists are rethinking how to approach mounting security problems. This report encourages S&R pros to closely monitor innovative security technologies that could complement or enhance the current (and future state) of their firm while improving overall customer experience.
