“The Influence Project”…

I came across this interesting project which hopes to measure the level of “influence” people have online – Basically you register, then you try to get as many people as possible to register as well.

Yes, Steven Cobert’s going to win it for sure 😉

Still, if you want to partake, you could do worse than boost me up the ladder if you find my posts an speaking influential in a positive or negative way – 🙂

“And The Audience Says…” – Feedback from the Amsterdam Executive Summit

June 25, 2010 Leave a comment

Last month I was invited to speak at our Executive Summit in Amsterdam, where 100 or so CIOs, CEOs and other executives from the Benelux area came to hear what McAfee was up to, and tell us where we were going right (and wrong).

Not content with talking at them for the day, we plied them with good wine, crispy bread and sandwiches which you could never find the equal in Subway or Quiznos. We also gave out some homework, asking participants to complete a survey of their security concerns which came back with some interesting results: Read more…

Just a reminder that this week on Friday 16th, I’ll be presenting at the CIO Peer Forum in Toronto.  Feel free to drop by and say hello. My slot is 9am. The abstract is:

With the ever changing regulatory landscape, increase of novel threats, and the continuing trend to mobilize data, it becomes increasingly important to consider how to protect that information from loss or disclosure, and how to protect organizations from the onerous task of publicly disclosing a breach. Mr Hunt discusses the current regulatory trends and the practical steps you can take to secure mobile information, without creating business disruption using technologies such as endpoint encryption, data loss prevention, and network based discovery/monitoring.

Speaking at Focus 2009, Vegas on October 7th.

September 28, 2009 Leave a comment

On October 7th I’ll be chairing a “Birds Of A Feather” session on the use of McAfee encryption products at our 2nd Annual user conference – Focus 2009. This session will be a chance to put me on the “Hot Seat”, and a chance to ask probing questions about McAfee’s current, and future product strategy.

I’ve done a few of these in the past, some have been very constructive, and have led to wide ranging product changes based on customer experiences we just didnt consider, some have been mud-slinging sessions though. I hope we’ll have the former, though I’m quite happy to sit through both.

For those coming to Focus who read this Blog, please feel free to find me and introduce yourselves – I’ll be at the conference answering questions and helping out throughout.

You can contact me via Twitter (CTOGoneWild) – I’ll be monitoring the #focus09 feed throughout the duration, or you can post a comment here.

I’m especially interested in knowing what kind of things you’d like to see discussed during this session, so if you have a question about our products or design strategy, tweet me (or comment) so we can properly answer them on the day.
