"Holy Jurassic Security: Top 10 Signs Your Network & Security Architecture Might Be Nearing Extinction!"

Kevin Peterson
Director of Security and Network Transformation

If you are totally happy with what you have built (said no real engineer ever), then this session is for your replacement. But if you are always looking to build the best network and security out there, then this session may very well change your life...or at least give you a leg up in your personal performance plan for the next year or two.

Kevin Peterson is the Director of Security and Network Transformation at Zscaler, where he primarily works with the largest cloud security deployments to ensure that the desired business objectives are achieved. He brings with him the advantage of having lead the security efforts for one of McKesson's (Fortune 10) major business units (75 software products, managed services...), as well as the company-wide cloud security strategy, ranging from A to Z (Azure to Zscaler!). As a top practitioner and trusted advisor on both enterprise and cloud security topics, his goal is helping everyone achieve the most effective security with the lowest cost to the business. He is also a featured speaker on the Security Influencers Podcast (available on iTunes), co-author of one information security book, and patent holder on security technologies. And, of course, maintains a presence in the metro Atlanta information security community.

We award the Roy Wilkinson Scholarship for one of the chapter members attending? The purpose of the $600.00 scholarship is to offset the cost of the CISSP exam. One member who attends the training will be awarded the scholarship based on attendance and other criteria established by the chapter.

If you know of someone who is not yet a chapter member, please encourage them to join to take advantage of this valuable training and the many benefits of being an ISSA member!
