Fortinet's Michael Xie to Discuss CSO Role at Cybersecurity Thought Leadership Forum - top government contractors - best government contracting event

CyberStockMichael Xie, Fortinet founder, president and chief technology officer, is set to speak at a cybersecurity thought leadership forum sponsored by Team8, an Israel-based cybersecurity foundry.

Xie will discuss the significance of a chief security officer's role in an organization's effort to bolster security, Fortinet said Monday.

“One of the biggest trends we see is a greater focus on internal segmentation,” said Xie.

“There’s always been a focus on protecting the perimeter, but the explosion of the Internet of Things has created new network attack vectors that organizations are simply not prepared to defend against,“ he added.

Part of a Nasdaq-hosted series of events in October, the cybersecurity forum is intended to tackle cybersecurity challenges and opportunities that face organizations.
