Dave Klein is the Senior Director of Engineering & Architecture for Guardicore. With more than 21 years of real-world cybersecurity experience he works with Guardicore teams, customers and industry thought leaders to address the challenges of securing modern hybrid cloud environments.
Dave encourages CISOs faced with securing their organizations to adopt security solutions and best practices that work easily and seamlessly across their heterogeneous environments.
Prior to Guardicore, Dave was the Engineering Manager for Forcepoint’s Federal Sector where he drove growth by adapting the company’s behavioral heuristics, Bayesian logic and predictive capabilities to defend US agencies against Insider and Advanced Persistent Threats. Dave also worked with other vendors, government and private sector entities on the NIST response to Presidential Policy Directive 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience. Before joining Forcepoint, Dave was a security leader at Cisco Systems. Always a visionary, Dave was responsible for key enhancements in Cisco Network Admission Control, Ironport Web and Mail Gateways and other core Cisco security offerings and led some of the largest sales engagements for US Federal security solutions. In the years preceding his work with Cisco, Dave worked for McAfee. His work there included working with the City of New York post 9/11 for three years, helping shore up cyber defenses and developing a National, State and Local Government engineering and sales team.
Dave has spoken on a wide variety of cybersecurity topics including micro-segmentation, crytpojacking, hybrid cloud adoption, PCI compliance, stages of the cyber security kill chain, interactions between the physical and cyber worlds as it relates to the radicalization and arming of domestic terrorists, and using cyber forensics in real world criminal cases.
