He has led the various cyber security practices of this giant telco since he first created them!

If you've ever heard of Aston Martin and know, even a little, about cars you know, Aston Martin is not a typical automobile. The same could be said about their CISO; Robin is anything but typical. In our thirty-third episode, we travel across the pond (again) to the UK to talk with Robin Smith, Head of Cyber and Information Security. Hear why Robin quotes Einstein ("We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.") and believes the problems and challenges we face in the cloud will take a new way of thinking...what he calls liquid thinking.

March 14, 2021

A few months ago, I noticed a post on LinkedIn featuring one of my contacts and his recent promotion to America's Sales Leader for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security at Amazon. I was pleasantly surprised when I read it was Brendan Staveley. I worked with Brendan at Check Point Software Technologies, Ltd. Point Software; it was his first job after graduating college. Fast-forward a little more than two decades and experiences at Fortinet and Cisco, Brendan now leads a lean team of AWS Security specialists covering the western hemisphere. I had a great time catching up with Brendan and hearing his comments and thoughts about the cloud. Hear Brendan discuss "empathy" and why it's a priority when assisting customers in their migration of workloads to the public cloud.
