Richard Power Launches A Series of CSO Magazine Interviews with C-Level Executives Responsible for Cyber Security and Privacy

Richard Power Launches A Series of CSO Magazine Interviews with C-Level Executives in Cyber Security and Privacy

I have launched a series of interviews with C-level executives responsible for cyber security and privacy; who also happen to be thought leaders. (In case you haven't noticed, "C-level executive" and "thought leader" are not synonyms.)

These interviews will be appearing in CSO Magazine throughout 2012.

The first and second of the series are already available via CSO On-Line:

The perilous path to a new privacy; McAfee CPO Michelle Dennedy answers four big-picture questions from Richard Power

How to meet the challenges of 21st century security and privacy; from the theft of trade secrets, to the rise of social media, to the failure of weak governance, Richard Power talks to Christopher Burgess on the challenges security and privacy professionals face now

Michelle Dennedy, Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer for McAfee, is a leading privacy champion in the corporate world. She is uniquely qualified to speak to the challenges and opportunities before us. Prior to McAfee, Dennedy served as Vice President for Security and Privacy Solutions for Oracle, and before that as Chief Privacy Officer for Sun Microsystems.

Christopher Burgess, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Security Officer at Atigeo, LLC. Prior to Atigeo, Burgess was Senior Security Advisor to the Chief Security Officer (CSO) at Cisco. Before his run at Cisco, Burgess served for thirty years as a senior national security executive for the government of United States, living and working in strategic regions throughout the world. Oh yes, and in 2008, Burgess and I co-authored Secrets Stolen, Fortunes Lost: Preventing Intellectual Property Theft and Economic Espionage in the 21st Century (ISBN: 978-1-59749-255-3).

Stay tuned for the next in the series ...
