Monday here at the show, as I've written before, is quiet. As far as RSAC is concerned, the only people here really are the vendors and their staff, a few press and analyst types, conference organizers, and the workers putting the expo hall together.

I've always thought of this day as the calm before the storm.

RSAC isn't a hacker conference; it's a business conference. It's been around since 1991, and has grown quite a bit since then. Last year, nearly 30,000 people attended, along with more than 350 vendors.
