Speaker: Alex Borhani, CISO of; former FBI Special Agent

RSVP to:

The pace of technology change is challenging traditional cybersecurity strategies. Not long ago, clouds and mobility forced organizations to rethink their security and network architectures. And when most network traffic was destined for the data center, it made sense to backhaul all traffic over a hub-and-spoke network protected by a 'castle-and-moat' security model. With today’s massive investments in SaaS applications, moving internal applications to private clouds for unfettered access requires a new approach. As the Internet becomes the corporate network, how do you adapt your security? And how can your moves to the cloud be made more secure?

Speaker's Bio: Alex became an FBI Special Agent in 2004 when he was assigned to the Sacramento Field Office working cyber and counter-terrorism investigations. In 2011, he became a Supervisory Special Agent in Counterterrorism Division, addressing terrorist use of the internet. In 2013, he was assigned as the Unit Chief in the Cyber Division, leading the FBI’s mission against cyberterrorism. In 2016, he became the CISO for, and is currently implementating a Zero Trust security framework. Using this framework, will significantly improve its ability to adapt to SaaS, mergers and acquisitions, remote workforce, and BYOD, while increasing overall security posturing.
