For the first time, cybersecurity was front and center, says Fortinet's Alain Sanchez. To fix the failures of previous industrial revolutions as well as safeguard the future, leading politicians and business leaders say cybersecurity will be a key component.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Cybersecurity Summit in London, Sanchez discusses:

  • The overwhelming cybersecurity message from the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos;
  • What this means for digital transformation;
  • The roles that vendors, partners and cybersecurity leaders must play;
  • Initiatives and solutions available now to help organizations build their success.

Sanchez works in the Office of the CISO at Fortinet, serving as senior evangelist. He previously was senior consulting director at Huawei Technologies, vice president of marketing and communications at Systra, director of corporate image at Veolia Environnement and chief marketing officer at Alcatel-Lucent.
