Voice of Security Radio: Will a Digital Transformation Transform Your Security?

'Digital Transformation' can be a big umbrella term: What does it mean – and what does it mean to your security? Those are the questions for this week's Voice of Security Radio.

"Digital transformation" is a hot topic in enterprise IT these days, but it's a phrase that carries questions as well as answers. For example, what does digital transformation mean for those charged with the security of the network and application infrastructure? Everyone needs answers, and to get those answers we're turning to Kevin Walker, chief technology and strategy officer for Juniper Networks' engineering organization.

Register here and mark your calendar for 3:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 6, when we'll welcome Juniper Networks' Kevin Walker to talk about the impact that a digital transformation can have on enterprise security -- and what aspects of security need to be taken into account when going down the digital transformation road.

Walker is responsible for driving the security strategy both internally within Juniper, and externally with investors, partners, influencers and customers. He provides the guidance required for Juniper to conceive, develop and create momentum for industry-leading security solutions. Working closely with the Security Engineering team, Walker identifies the opportunities for improved security, growth and innovation to deliver the scalable, reliable and compliant security architecture needed in today’s security landscape.

Before joining Juniper, Walker was VP and assistant chief information security officer (CISO) at Walmart.com. He has served as CISO, chief security strategist and director of information security for a number of notable companies, including Intuit, Cisco, Symantec and Veritas Software. With over 25 years in various computer science and information technology disciplines, focusing on enterprise applications, network design and information security, Walker possesses research and engineering expertise across of range of technologies including networking protocols, securing applications at the atomic level, cryptography and speech biometrics.

Walker is an accomplished international public speaker who speaks regularly on such topics as technology adoption, process optimization, regulatory impact and IT industry trends. He is a longtime Silicon Valley veteran with two children. He is very active in the jet warbird community and flies in several airshows and races.

Can a digital transformation make your security better? What must you do (and avoid doing) to keep a digital transformation from making your security worse? We'll talk with him about these and other issues on this week's Voice of Security Radio. Register here and join us at 3:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 6 for what is sure to be a great episode. And remember: you'll have a chance to ask your own questions when you join the conversation around the episode. When the on-air portion ends, Walker will join the discussion to answer your questions directly -- and that's something you won't want to miss.
