Interview with Martin McKeay at RSA

I had the pleasure of a brief chat with Martin of Networks Security Podcasts about what we do at NSS Labs. Martin is a prolific security blogger, podcaster, and QSA by day. Listen to the interview here: http://www.mckeay.net/2008/04/09/rsa-2008-rick-moy-nss-labs/

Rocking RSA

Last week's RSA Conference 2008 in San Francisco was one of the best one's I've ever been to. For purely selfish reasons! NSS Labs had a number of firsts.
  • It was our first time to have a booth at any trade show.
  • Over a dozen product vendors proudly displayed their NSS Approved logos at their booths. These large shiny plaques are about 5 times larger than the typical plastic sign you might otherwise see floating about.
  • Our debut was accompanied by the support of a broad ecosystem of test tool providers, security vendors, and others who shared our booth as partners.
  • We hosted two incredibly well attended Advisory Group sessions on testing and PCI.
  • We released a record number of product certification reports.
  • We threw the undisputed coolest party of all RSA and hung out with the heavy-lifters of the security industry, press, and analyst community. Where else could you get your groove on, and enjoy a shoe shine, shave and massage?
What could we possibly do next? I ask myself.
