Topic:  Evolve Beyond Disaster Recovery to IT Resilience

IT resilience is achieved when a company is capable of responding to a disruption so quickly that end-users and customers are not aware that a disruption occurred. Organizations that embrace this concept, which is essentially a more proactive approach to BC/DR, focus on continuous availability rather than recovery after the fact. Automation and simplification of replication and recovery are part of resilience, and ensure that companies can prove the availability of their applications and data at any time. In this presentation learn how Zerto work towards a complete solution with no dependencies on hypervisors, hardware, or clouds in order to achieve IT Resilience.

Bio: George has over 20 years of experience in information technology with the last 12 years in information security.  After graduating from WUSTL with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and minor in Computer Science, he started his career as a network engineer for Shell Oil and then went on to work for a number of tech start-ups including Livingston Enterprises (acquired by Alcatel Lucent, now Nokia), Redback Networks (acquired by Ericsson) and Anue Systems (acquired by Ixia, now Keysight Technologies).  He also founded and self-funded his own tech-startup, RedDot Networks, which developed custom, FPGA-based appliances for application performance testing and security.  George currently works for Synack as the South Central Regional Director.  He is also a member for the advisory board for the Austin InfraGard Chapter, a mentor for the AFA CyberPatriot program and a member of the Capitol of Texas ISSA Chapter.

Brief Description of Topic:  Crowdsourcing has proven to be an incredibly effective way to undertake a task or solve a problem by leveraging the skills, diversity, creativity and scale of an open or private group of people on a local, regional or global basis.  Given the shortage of information security professionals, crowdsourcing application security and penetration testing has been effectively adopted by countless organizations and government agencies, including the Department of Defense and Internal Revenue Service.  This presentation will provide a brief history of crowdsourcing applied to various areas and then detail how it is applied to information security, specifically application security and penetration testing.
