Crosspoint Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on cybersecurity, has acquired RSA Conference Parent, a cybersecurity conference series, from affiliates of RSA Security. Existing RSA Security sponsors Clearlake Capital Group and Symphony Technology Group will invest in this new company alongside Crosspoint Capital.
RSA Conference is a series of events and year-round learning for the cybersecurity community to discuss current and future concerns. The firm’s annual cybersecurity conference event attracts over 40,000 attendees, industry executives, and policymakers. The investment from Crosspoint Capital, Clearlake and STG will enhance the knowledge sharing and networking capabilities of the RSA Conference community.
“RSA Conference plays a pivotal role in the cybersecurity community and ecosystem,” said Dr. Hugh Thompson, managing partner of Crosspoint Capital. “I am excited to work with management, the cyber community and our partners at Clearlake and STG to build on the success of RSA Conference as the knowledge broker of the cybersecurity industry.”
