ProtectWise CTO and Surescripts CISO to Present New Approach to Executive Security Reporting at Gartner Summit

Session will Feature Demonstration on Using Advanced Visualizations to Show Threat Management Effectiveness to C-Suite and Board




Gene Stevens, CTO and Co-founder of ProtectWise, has more than 20 years experience in software development, cloud computing, security-as-a-service, and distributed systems. Prior to founding ProtectWise, he was founder and CTO at TagLabs, a mobile tagging company. Stevens has also served in senior engineering roles at McAfee, MX Logic and GDX.



Paul Calatayud, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for Surescripts, heads up information security, audit and enterprise risk management for the company. Prior to Surescripts, Calatayud was director of information security for United Health Group, a fortune 15 company. He also served as an information security cryptographer for the US Army. Calatayud holds multiple IT certifications, including CISSP, CISA, CISM and GCIH.



In complex threat environments, using traditional approaches to aggregate and correlate data from multiple IT products to report on security operations in a way that “make sense” to corporate management and boards of directors is virtually impossible. In this co-presentation, attendees will learn how Surescripts uses retrospective network security monitoring & analysis and immersive visualization technology provided by ProtectWise to demonstrate the effectiveness of its threat management strategy to non-IT stakeholders. The presenters will demonstrate visualizations that communicate key metrics including response time to threats, average time to discovery and continuous improvement in terms business executives can understand.


Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Maryland



Wednesday, June 15, 2016 from 1:20 PM - 1:45 PM
