Overwhelming data. Imposing organization silos. Lack of insight from tools and information. These are broad challenges shared by many public sector entities. Fadi Fadhil of Palo Alto Networks offered strategies to address the complexities and streamline cybersecurity operations.

  • How security organizations are overwhelmed by information and silos;
  • The complexities introduced by shadow IT;
  • Strategies for streamlining cybersecurity operations.

Fadhil has over 20 years of experience with digital transformation, business strategy and partnership building in government and education. He served as the CIO of the city of Minneapolis and of Minneapolis Public Schools. He was also director of technology in Saint Paul Schools, Minnesota, and lead technology architect and liaison between the U.S. Army and the new Iraqi government in Baghdad, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom II, 2003-2005.
