Navigating the Digital Age:

The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for IT Leaders

The fast-evolving digital economy is stimulating tremendous opportunity and business transformation.  Central to this evolution is the emergence of the cloud.  While we have every reason to be bullish on the future, we have serious work to do to assure trust in the cloud and, by extension, trust in the digital economy.   The very recent Chip vulnerabilities shared publicly in early January known as “Meltdown” and “Spectre”, once again demonstrates that we have much work to do to secure our enterprises and the supporting ecosystem.  Yesterday’s security solutions no longer work.  Complexity has become our enemy.  Fresh thinking and thoughtful action is need … and needed quickly.


Our Speaker:  

 Brian Kelly -- Chief Security Officer, Rackspace


As Rackspace Chief Security Officer, Brian Kelly looks out for the safety and security of Rackers, facilities, infrastructure and data/information. Brian also brings his vision and expertise to the development of Rackspace’s security offerings. 

Brian joined Rackspace in October 2014 after three decades of leadership experience in security, special operations intelligence, and business operations with the U.S. government, Department of Defense (DoD), and private sector. He previously led the Giuliani Advanced Security Center in New York and served as CEO of iDefense, the first cyber threat intelligence provider for the private sector.

He is the author of “From Stone to Silicon: a Revolution in Information Technology and Implications for Military Command and Control” and a contributing author of the book, “Navigating the Digital Age, The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers”. Brian also sits on the board of directors for a number of organizations, including the University of Texas San Antonio Advisory Board for the School of Engineering.
