I am pleased to be kicking off this Ask the Data Center Security Expert series at Cisco. This series is aimed at security professionals, partners, data center teams, and IT business decision makers and will address key security issues around virtualization, cloud and anticipated issues associated with trends such as the Software Defined Data Center. The series will take the form of blogs, videos, NetSec chats, and webinar panels. I have an array of expertise lined up ranging from key reseller and technology ecosystem partners, industry leaders and luminaries and internal Cisco experts. Stay tuned for the first in this series coming to you next week out of Singapore.
To get started, a little about me -- I was very excited to commence a data center and security solutions marketing role at Cisco 3 weeks ago. I have over 12 years experience developing holistic security solutions and have been focused on data center and cloud for the last 3 years. I currently chair the Cloud Security Alliance Cloud Controls (CCM), an industry effort dedicated to harmonizing regulatory controls for decreased compliance complexity and also have been bridging efforts with other industry associations such as the Open Data Center Alliance.Please take a few minutes to respond to the question below so that I can tailor the Ask the Data center expert series to address your key interest area. I’m most interested in exploring topics around:
- Application level security
- Data center consolidation – consolidating security
- Virtualization security such as hypervisor level security, secure virtual machine migration, security visibility
- Private cloud security implementation
- Transitioning to public cloud
