Cybersecurity is once again on everyone’s mind as the latest major data breach grabs headlines, creates potential victims of identity theft and calls into question the overall security of major players in the financial system. The latest cybersecurity breach offers a painful reminder of why IT security keeps most C-levels up at night. 

As a Fortune 500 company, CenturyLink, too, has cybersecurity concerns.  Two of our cybersecurity leaders will be on the road in the coming months discussing how they keep our company secure, without breaking the bank.   Dave Mahon is Vice President and Chief Security Officer at CenturyLink.   He is a former FBI agent and helps steer our internal cybersecurity efforts. Bill Bradley is CenturyLink’s Senior Vice President of Cyber Engineering and Technology Services and leads our cybersecurity strategy. Before that, Bill served as CenturyLink’s CIO. Bill and his entire team is instrumental in protecting the critical assets and infrastructure of our large, multi-national organization.
