Sr. Content Marketing Manager

This year's RSA Conference theme especially resonates with our team: "be a part of the collaborative solution to make cybersecurity and our world BETTER."

More on Maps: "Hack the Gap" in Cybersecurity Talent

Head of Cybersecurity Strategy

Jonathan is a seasoned cybersecurity strategist. He's been at the forefront of international security policy and now leads Illumio's public cybersecurity policy engagements and research.

Last month I put on my Halford McKinder hat and wrote a piece about how maps can help shape our perceptions of the world and help us defend ourselves.

CTO Cybersecurity Predictions for 2019

CTO and Founder

PJ is a technologist and architect focused on complex distributed system solutions. He’s responsible for Illumio’s technology vision and platform architecture.

It's that time of year again so I took some time to reflect back on 2018 and what we can expect to ring true in 2019. I've boiled it down to two predictions.
