Masergy's Security Expertise Tapped by International Security Forum

Cyber Security VP and Former NSA Security Expert Shares Insights With European Security Forum

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2015) -  Masergy Communications Inc., a global leader in managed networking and cloud services, announced today that David Venable, Vice President of Cyber Security at Masergy, has been invited to join the New Security Leaders Program of the Warsaw Security Forum. Venable joins an invitation-only group of leading experts in the fields of international security, to share his perspectives on NATO and global security challenges.

Warsaw Security Forum is an international association of high-level corporate, government and independent experts specializing in global security and defense policies. The Forum has invited Venable to share his considerable security expertise in cryptography, network and application security and vulnerability assessments. Venable will leverage his 15-years' worth of experience in computer information operations and digital network intelligence to assist the group.

"It's all too easy to forget that security threats aren't just targeted at business -- critical national infrastructures, governments, and security agencies are also significant targets for attack," Venable said. "Forums such as this are vital to help answer questions such as how a state should respond to cyber attacks on critical infrastructure and what technical and legal countermeasures can be undertaken."

The Warsaw Security Forum's mission is to enhance the understanding of European and NATO security policies, which will be accomplished through discussions between key policy makers and cyber security experts. The New Security Leaders Program kicks off at a conference taking place this week in Warsaw. Participants will discuss:

  • The future of NATO and the Euro-Atlantic Partnership
  • Cyber warfare
  • Energy security
