PANEL

Innovative Solutions for Cybersecurity and Threat Protection

As IT leaders are faced with increased security concerns since the pandemic and organizational/cultural shifts toward remote workforces, we want to explore the challenges and opportunities to improve processes around cybersecurity, cloud security, identity access management, and risk management.

This is a unique opportunity for passionate, industry professionals to advance the thinking in this field. As a member, you'll engage with other panelists, learn more than you contribute, and get rewarded and recognized in the form of points and cash rewards. This engagement is moderated by an expert facilitator and is open asynchronously around-the-clock for your convenience over 4 days. You will also receive a $200 honorarium.

Each day of the 4 days, the facilitator will introduce a new subtopic exploring a new facet related to future of cybersecurity practices and technologies.

Project Objectives:
- Better understand the needs of the market.
- Explore and map the current landscape.
- Identify future directions.
- Determine a recommended path.

Doug Willia
CTO at American Airlines Center
Disaster Recovery has always been a passion on mine. When forced to make such a huge change to the daily routine, opportunities that you hadn't planned for present themselves and you have to be quick to present the right solution that also protects the business. Security isn't a second thought, its part of every decision you make as an IT leader. You must have the experience and planning skills to create a valid solution, in a timely manner, in order to keep the business in production, while locking down areas outside the norm, like personal desktop computers at employee homes. Again, I love a challenge and knowing how the business works, help you make the correct decisions.
Art Kirako
Sr. Director of IT Infrastructure and Security
My passion as a Senior Director of IT Infrastructure & Security is focused mainly on the security aspect of the organization. It is one of very few areas in the IT realm that is always evolving and changing and requires close oversight. There is no such thing as a perfectly secure platform and if it exists it is very short lived. I enjoy learning about new technologies that can help protect our organization from compromise.
Riyad Jazmaw
Head of Information Security and IT Governance
Threat intelligence and protection is a day-to-day challenge, being proactive in detecting threats and preventing them by utilizing the ML techniques and putting yourself ahead of bad actors is a challenging and rewarding activity to do, which makes this topic particularly very interesting.

FAQ
  • add remove What is Currnt?
    Currnt is a “Knowledge Networking” platform where companies and professionals come to stay relevant on the latest advances in their industries in the face of the increasing pace of change. Companies sponsor panels to learn about where markets are headed or how to leverage new capabilities. Professionals join to demonstrate and develop their passions with equal caliber peers in expert-only facilitated online engagements. On Currnt, we take our passions seriously and ourselves lightly. See our Community Guidelines, to learn more of the rules of the road, here are some highlights

    • Be yourself. The authenticity of Currnt begins with the passion of people.
    • Be respectful. This applies to every person, at all times.
    • Be inclusive. Tolerate, welcome, and consider diverse people and perspectives.
    • Build empathy and understanding. Engage in debates that are in good faith.
    • Foster meaningful and genuine connections. This is what Currnt is all about.
    • Do not plagiarize or fail to cite other’s ideas.
    • Don’t game the points by trying to coordinate intentional recognition.
  • add remove How do Panels work?
    The panel is like a facilitated forum of hand selected experts on a topic sponsored by a company that wants to learn fast. Panels are organized in chapters called Themes that focus on one subtopic at a time. In some panels Themes are only 24 hours in duration, in others they are a week long, and in some they are two weeks long. When one Theme closes, a new one begins. You come in when you feel like it, but try to come in twice per Theme. You earn points from your peers and the facilitator when they react to your ideas. Likewise, others earn points when you interact on their posts. The more we discuss and debate, the better the insights, the more points earned by all.

  • add remove Why should I apply? Do I get paid?
    Professionals join Currnt because they want to remain relevant on subjects they’re passionate about and subjects that are shaping the future of their industry. They also:

    • Engage and connect with equal caliber peers in their industry
    • Learn and enhance their knowledge
    • Get recognized and rewarded for providing their inputs and thought-leadership
    • Earn honorarium payments and/or recognition points that are redeemable for cash. Learn more here.
  • add remove Are there specific times I need to participate?
    There are no set times for calls or meetings. Participation is 100% online on the Currnt platform and engagement between the all expert panelists is asynchronous in written form. Just come in twice per Theme, at your convenience.

  • add remove How do KnowledgeStreams and DesignSprints work?
    Streams are ongoing online engagements for exploration or working iteratively with a panel, and Sprints are on-demand engagement to get to actionable insights quickly. Both are facilitated and are always-on for participants to engage at-convenience. The conversations are segmented into Themes which are subtopics which are like chapters in a book. In a 4 Day Sprint, Themes are 24 hours, whereas a Theme in a Stream is every two week. Throughout the discussion, the facilitator highlights and categorizes the “key takeaways” to be voted and distilled into a summary report. It’s also common that other pieces of content (whitepapers, blogs, podcasts) are also prepared from the distilled insights.

  • add remove I’ve applied. Now what?
    Your application will be internally reviewed in the following 24-48hrs and screened for any conflict of interest, and general fit. Next your application will be shortlisted for the sponsor to accept, bookmark or reject. You will receive a notification each step of the way, but expect this may take a couple of days, or even weeks if the panel is new. Nevertheless, in addition to the notifications, you can always go back to the Apply page to view the status of your application.

  • add remove I’ve been selected. What am I expected to do when selected?
    Once you receive your Welcome Email, please RSVP by clicking the link in the notification. You can also gain access to the panel through your ‘My Currnt’ at the top of the page. Finally, once you have RSVP’d by logging into the panel, there is often a Welcome Tab where you can introduce yourself to the other panelists. If it’s a new panel, the first Theme will launch in a few days, if it’s an ongoing panel just jump right in by reacting to the question or to what the other panelists had to say.

  • add remove If I have other questions or issues, what should I do?
    Please contact support to answer any other questions or troubleshoot any issues via email or chat.
