Speaker: Mark Rhodes-Ousley is the author of Network Security: The Complete Reference and Information Security: The Complete Reference, both published by McGraw-Hill.  A resident of Silicon Valley, he has been fortunate to live through the early years, boom times, and mainstreaming of computers and the Internet, practicing information security even before Windows existed.  Mark has specialized in information security since 1994 when he built the first Internet firewall for Santa Clara County, and has built quality-focused security programs at Merrill-Lynch, National City Bank, Robert Half International, Sun Microsystems, PG&E, Clorox, Hitachi, SunPower, and the original Napster. He holds two core beliefs: that business processes are just as important as technology; and that security should be a business enabler, with a goal of enhancing the customer experience.  Mark holds bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering and applied mathematics from the University of California, San Diego, as well as several professional certifications.
