7pm at MassBay Community College, Wellesley
Architecting Better Security with Cisco

About the meeting
Architecting Better Security & Business Outcomes with SAFE. Security is becoming more widely required and increasingly expensive for organizations to implement correctly. This means that security leaders need to find ways to help drive operational goals while still adding more security strength. In this talk, we will introduce you to the SAFE security design process. SAFE is an architectural methodology that improves the collaboration and design efforts between the Security, Networking, and Business objectives within your organization. This vendor agnostic talk will take you through simple, time tested strategies to identify success criteria for security, clarify risks, threats, and polices, and bring the right security capabilities into your security architecture that aligns with your network implementations and business outcome.

About the speaker, William Young
William Young is a Security Solutions Architect at Cisco. His career focuses on developing an understanding of how security solutions must advocate, protect, and ensure business success. In 2001, he shifted his background in security architecture into security solution sales, intent on helping customers address not just specific security needs, but unique value benefits from well-deployed solutions. Having guided customers through compliance needs, cyber warfare and threat response, SOC operations, and outcome based security architecture, William focuses on integrating security capabilities to maximize security and operational outcomes.
