25th RSA Conference took place in San Francisco, which dealt with issues related to security and digital threats. At this event, Admiral Michael S. Rogers and RSA President Amit Yoran left an interesting message in which he says that as there are rapidly evolving threats, there must be an urgent need for partnerships that drive innovation, visibility and investment in security.

Analyzing the current technological scenario, it is possible to agree with the statements by Rogers and Yoran, since technologies such as Cloud Computing have created challenges for the security of data in organizations, especially when it comes to the defense of legacy systems and other applications. . Follow the details below and learn more about this subject.
