RSA Conference 2018: Songs for the Way


RSA Conference 2018 is fast approaching and we are pulling out all the stops to prepare. Our SonicWall team is looking forward to joining the attendees, thought leaders and keynotes in San Francisco for five days of sharing new approaches to cyber security, discussing the latest technology, and interacting with top security leaders and pioneers. Ready to take advantage of all the opportunities available at RSA, including the hands-on sessions, keynotes, and informal gatherings to tap into a smart, forward-thinking global community? We have just the way to get started.

Cyber security is always priority No. 1. But, with our automated, real-time breach detection and prevention platform watching over us, we do sometimes find unconventional ways to have fun — like creating a Spotify playlist.

Here’s a collection of tunes to get you in the zone and ready to experience all RSA Conference 2018 has to offer.

Mood: We selected a playlist that’s eclectic, unexpected and quirky, with thematic influence from technology, security, new media and California vibes. Each track is curated to get your gears turning and ready for full immersion at #RSAC.

Standout favorites:

“Technologic” – Daft Punk

No RSA Conference playlist would be complete without an appearance by French duo Daft Punk. This track’s heavy dance beat with electronically transposed voice chants is an iconic dance anthem that brings upbeat high energy to our picks.

“Somebody’s Watching Me” – Rockwell

This classic 1980’s chart-topper is another favorite of the SonicWall team. The world of firewalls and network security is wrought with constant online threats, and nobody knows how to identify and stop these threats better than SonicWall. Somebody is always watching you. There is no privacy. And it’s not a dream.

“Pocket Calculator” – Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk’s entire Computer World album could have made this list, but we decided to keep only the best tracks for our list. The album deals with the themes of the rise of computers within society, but the song’s addictively cheerful beat and looping vocals has the SonicWall team particularly enchanted.

“Robots” – Flight of the Conchords

The charming quirk of Flight of the Conchords is often overlooked and underrated. This eccentric track from the Kiwi folk duo is not only one of the favorite references in our office, it also presents some comical commentary on the world of new technology. We especially love the binary code breakdown in the middle of the track.
