Renee Tarun, VP of Information Security at Fortinet, spoke to Dan Woods about her contribution to Fortinet CISO Phil Quade’s new book “The Digital Big Bang: The Hard Stuff, the Soft Stuff, and the Future of Cybersecurity”.
Everything in our cyber universe is centered around the core elements of speed and connectivity, like the cosmic universe is centered around matter, gravity, and time. The Digital Big Bang explores approaching cybersecurity like science.
Like the scientists of centuries ago who led the search for knowledge about the cosmic big bang, space and the science behind it, this book includes thoughtful observations, hypothesis, and conclusions on cyberspace and the ‘digital’ big bang from today’s cybersecurity leaders.
Co-author Phil Quade is the Chief Information Security Officer for Fortinet and previously served as the National Security Agency Director’s Special Assistant for Cyber and Chief of the NSA Cyber Task Force, responsible for the White House relationship in cyber. More than 30 of the most accomplished leaders in the cybersecurity field join Quade to share their knowledge and experience working on the front lines in the changing world of digital transformation.
This book is important reading for business leaders who wants to evaluate and strengthen their security strategy, consumers who wants to understand their own cyber world, and students who will become the next innovators and workforce in the cybersecurity industry.
