In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent New York Security Summit, Konwiser discusses lessons learned in the government sector that apply well to other sectors, including:

  • Digital trust defined.
  • Why digital trust is good - and why it isn't more widespread.
  • Evergreen advice for better security: "Make it personal."

Konwiser, IBM's technical sales manager for financial markets in North America, has been involved with IT for almost 25 years, and for the past eight, largely focused largely on information security. He is a frequent speaker at industry events and has presented to audiences around the world on topics including IT innovation and business-technology alignment.
