RSA Conference Becomes an Independent Business


Posted on by Linda Gray Martin

Over the past thirty years, RSA Conference has come to be known as the premier event in the cybersecurity industry. RSAC is where the world talks security, and we’ve achieved this status because of our promise to deliver quality educational content that is both impartial and actionable. Today marks an exciting opportunity for the evolution of RSAC, and we are thrilled to announce that RSAC will now become a stand-alone, independent business.

Crosspoint Capital Partners (“Crosspoint Capital”), a private equity firm focused on the cybersecurity, privacy and infrastructure software markets, today announced the acquisition of a significant interest in RSA Conference (“RSAC” or “RSA Conference”) from affiliates of RSA Security, with existing RSA Security investors, Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. (“Clearlake”) and Symphony Technology Group (“STG”) remaining as investors in this new company alongside Crosspoint Capital.

The team at RSA Conference is dedicated to delivering unbiased insights, education and thought leadership from industry experts. The group aims to invest for growth and further enhance knowledge sharing, networking, experience and value for the RSAC community. Dr. Hugh Thompson, Managing Partner of Crosspoint Capital and the RSAC Program Committee Chairman for the last 13 years, will be part of the team leading this effort. More than 40,000 attendees join us annually for RSA Conference, and thousands more partake in our RSAC 365 offerings each month, and we are excited for the opportunity for continued evolution.

“The cybersecurity market continues to grow at an accelerated pace. RSA Conference plays a pivotal role in the cybersecurity community and ecosystem,” said Dr. Hugh Thompson, Managing Partner of Crosspoint Capital, who has served as RSA Conference’s Program Committee Chairman for the last 13 years. “RSA Conference has long been the convening authority for the cybersecurity industry. I am excited to work with management, the cyber community and our partners at Clearlake and STG to build on the success of RSA Conference as the knowledge broker of the cybersecurity industry.”

RSAC will continue to be where the security industry converges, both in-person and online, to discuss current and future security concerns, and we celebrate the chance to provide members of our community access to the research, certifications, training, and news they need to advance their cybersecurity posture and build stronger and smarter teams.
