Damon Kachurv, Global Business Development, Symantec Corporation

Cyber security addresses a wide range of issues and solutions related to protecting networks, businesses and subscribers from malicious Internet activity and harmful content. Experts agree that a layered approach is best, and perhaps no layer is as important as the network itself.

Traditional approaches rely on many different solutions installed at the boundary between a "trusted" private business or residential network and the "untrusted" public Internet. Today, residential subscribers and overwhelmed business IT security professionals are demanding a network-based solution that complements these boundary techniques and is specifically engineered for the untrusted environment and threats of the public Internet.

Join Sandvine and Symantec to learn:

  • Why the network is often overlooked as a security layer, and why protecting it imposes specific requirements
  • Why boundary solutions are a necessary but insufficient part of a layered, end-to-end approach
  • How communications service providers can protect the network, subscribers and businesses, and can even grow revenue with value-added "secure pipes" services.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
