On-Site Tips & Tricks

Daily Addendum
Be sure and review the Daily Addendum for important session and exhibitor updates since the Program Guide was published.

Wifi Access at RSAC 2020
Important! The .RSACONFERENCE wireless network available at the Moscone Center is an open, unsecured 5 GHz network. NOTE: 2.4 GHz support is no longer supported at RSA Conference. RSA and Cisco AMP Threat Grid will be using data from the network for an educational demonstration on a working SOC, we strongly recommend that you use appropriate security measures, (e.g., utilizing a VPN connection, installing a personal firewall, updating security patches, turning off your wireless adapter when not in use, disabling ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) capabilities on your device).

Captioning for Keynotes
This year, open captioning will be available for all keynotes viewed in-person at the West and South stages. Closed captioning will be available for all live-streamed keynotes as well as for recorded keynotes that will be posted online shortly after Conference.

Book Signings
All book signings will take place in the Bookstore (Moscone South, Esplanade level). See bookstore hours and book signing schedule.
