The RSA Conference 2005 kicks off in San Francisco on later today. Keynote speakers include Bill Gates of Microsoft and fraud author Frank W Abagnale.
IT Week's Roger Howorth and VNUnet's Iain Thompson will be at the show and will be sending news and blogs back from the show floor, so keep checking back to see all the latest news and gossip from the show floor.
As Roger notes in his story currently on IT Week today, key issues likely to be discussed as the show will cover possible legislation affecting vendor liability for security products. But Roger thinks that this subject won't be touched on by the "Golden" Gates himself, who would probably prefer not to see another court case involving his software again.
Personal identity theft, compliance, cryptography, web services and new ideas about mobile & wireless security will also be covered at the show. For Roger's full report see http://www.itweek.co.uk/news/1161190
