“It’s not a matter of if, but when” is a common axiom about cybersecurity breaches. In the midst of increasing regulation and a workforce challenges, how do partners and suppliers make security a business-enabler by becoming the customer’s trusted advisor? Join security experts from Forcepoint, Gemalto and Arrow as they share real-world examples and forward-looking perspectives.
Davitt Potter Global Security Practice Leader, Arrow
Davitt Potter is the global security practice Leader at Arrow. A nearly life-long
computer geek, Potter’s first PC was a Commodore 64 at age 8. After being indoctrinated in computer science at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Potter obtained real-world education as a field engineer and systems architect, then, for over 15 years, he was a security and infrastructure consultant. Potter joined Arrow in 2010. He has been director of technical services since 2013 and currently leads the Arrow Security Engineering team, driving strategy discussions, CTO/CISO consulting and end-to-end engagements to provide partners and their customers with information to help securely enable transformative businesses. In the very little free time that leaves, Potter likes to ski, hike, write, work on old cars and (poorly) play his collection of guitars. He lives in the country outside of Dallas, Texas.
