In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Romness discusses:

  • Where agencies struggle in digital transformation;
  • What's missing in current technology solutions;
  • Why today's firewalls "aren't your grandfather's firewalls" and are even more powerful than those called next-gen.

For over 30 years, Romness has been devoted to helping government and education organizations securely accomplish their goals. He is honored to be able to help leaders understand and implement the latest cyber strategies to defend against threats, maintain individuals' privacy, protect sensitive information and secure government intellectual property. Prior to Cisco Systems, Romness held leadership positions at Hewlett-Packard, AT&T and Panasonic.
