PG&E invited Brian Arellanes, CEO of ITSourceTEK, to sit on a panel and discuss Cyber Security along side Supervisory Special Agent of the FBI’s Cyber Security Squad, Elvis Chan, and McKinsey & Co.’s Cyber Security Expert, Venky Anant.
As a part of the SF Small Business Conference, the panel focused on how small businesses can use best practices to be aware of threats and become secure. The discussion was moderated by the sponsor PG&E, Supplier Diversity Expert, David Pell. The panel focused on emerging trends, threats, and strategies to stay secure despite much smaller budgets than big businesses and Government agencies.
It was an interactive session with real life questions and concerns coming from the audience, which helped many of those in attendance address their own specific cyber security questions, concerns, and/or needs. For the past 15+ years Brian has been a part of or led many security projects with Northrop Grumman, Air Force, Navy, DHS / TSA, and several Fortune 100 companies, which made it deeply rewarding for him and ITSourceTEK to see that experience benefit the glue that keeps America in an economic global leadership position, Small Businesses.
Special thanks to PG&E, FBI, and McKinsey & Co. for committing resources, time, and valuable knowledge of cyber security to the Small Business and Minority Business community.
