Ted is a well-known, highly regarded figure in the security and compliance markets. Over the last 12 years, he has conceived and launched multiple successful security start-ups across software, hardware, and professional services. He served as the founding VP of Marketing at Application Security, the leading provider of database security solutions. Prior to Application Security, Ted was a company founder and Chief Strategist (functionally the VP of Marketing) at Arbor Networks (acquired by Danaher), a leading network security firm whose technology protects the backbone networks of virtually every provider around the globe. Prior to Arbor, Julian was a company founder and VP of Marketing at @stake, the premier digital security consulting firm (acquired by Symantec).
Ted and I will be talking about the impact of connected devices and IoT on the practice of incident response within the enterprise and the challenges associated with doing IR on IoT. We'll also look at the need for better security orchestration in mixed IT/OT environments.
