    Join AWC and Tableau in Fremont for a crucial discussion about cybersecurity and data safety. Thank you to Tableau for hosting!

    We see it now almost daily on the news, another cyber-attack and the release of sensitive data. We are constantly bombarded with information on best practices, products, and tips all meant to help keep our personal data and our company’s data secure.

    Steve's talk will cover the more prevalent cyber-attacks today, as well as how to not fall victim to them. He will finish with a discussion of how to be more proactive in avoiding attacks, and practical things we can all do to protect our personal data and the data belonging to our company or organization.

    Steve will be joined by be Joe Salowey from Tableau. Joe will focus on “Product Security at Tableau”.

    Joe Salowey

    Joe Salowey is a Senior PM at Tableau. Joe is passionate about security and developing secure products. He has extensive experience as a security architect, however, he found that even with secure protocols the lack of emphasis in secure product development practices led to product vulnerabilities that impacted the ultimate security of solutions built with these products so he broadened focus to include secure development lifecycle (SDL).

    As a security architect he designs, develops and implements security protocols and solutions used widely throughout the Internet and other communication networks. He developed solutions tailored to integrate into the specific needs of various environments from service provider wireless networks to enterprise access network security.

    As a security development lifecycle (SDL) specialist he leads development teams and organizations through improving the security posture of their current product offerings and putting in place a secure development lifecycle process to build security into their future offerings. He works with products that span domains from application to network and operating system security.

    Joe actively participates in open international standards development organizations such as the IETF and IEEE to develop open security standards.
