Kingdom Ridge Capital Attending RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco
Kingdom Ridge Capital, LLC, an emerging long/short technology hedge fund, is attending RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco, California. The RSA Conference is billed as the world’s leading conference focused on the topic of information security.
RSA Conference was developed in 1991 as a forum for cryptographers to gather and share the latest knowledge and advancements in the area of Internet security. Throughout its history, RSA Conference has aimed to attract the world's best and brightest in the field, creating opportunities for conference attendees to learn about IT security's most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers, luminaries and emerging and established companies.
“Analysts at Kingdom Ridge are responsible for understanding the rapidly changing technology landscape,” said Kingdom Ridge Capital Portfolio Manager Chris Zepf. “By attending the RSA Conference, Kingdom Ridge can better understand the information security challenges that organizations face in the Big Data era.”
Beyond covering trends in information security, RSA Conference 2013 will examine the current information revolution and how to use, secure and share the massive volumes of data that are created each and every day. Today, we find ourselves in the midst of the Big Data revolution. Data has grown big and gets bigger with every digital transaction we make. As an illustration of how massive the data volumes have become, an article authored by Andrew McAfee and Erik Brynjolfsson in the October 2012 Harvard Business Review indicated that more data cross the internet every second than were stored in the entire internet just 20 years ago.
