Hello, Guest!

EM Logo5Executive spotlights are in-depth Q&A’s which ExecutiveBiz conducts with numerous chief and top-level executives in GovCon.
The intimate access afforded by these interviews provides insight as to how companies are acquiring new business, what the future holds and the personal side of corporate leaders.
This past week, ExecutiveBiz published a spotlight with Carlos Fernandes, director of Salient Federal Solution’s Cyber Security Center of Excellence.
He spoke about his role in bringing a new offering to bear, the transition to IPv6 and the security of U.S. networks.
“My Center of Excellence team and I are building on this capability and a concept that I have been working on for at least 10 years now, called “precognitive capabilities” for predicting, preventing, and persisting against cyber incidents, instead of just responding after they occur,” Fernandes said.
He said that IPv6 is a big change from IPv4 and will bring many changes to the web.
“It’s inevitable that we’ll have to transition to IPv6, but the biggest concern is that, during this transition period, IPv4 and IPv6 will co-exist on the legacy networks,” he said.
Fernandes talked about secuirity vunerabilities in U.S. networks and where companies and the government should go next.
“It’s common knowledge that we are very vulnerable in this area. The solution would be to understand that the problem is less technical and much more political, philosophical and cultural,” Fernandes added.
Executive Mosaic’s portfolio of more than five media platforms serves to inform executives from across GovCon and the defense sector of the events, people and companies that shape their industry.
ExecutiveBiz is one of EM’s premiere websites and focuses on the news that executives need to know, including alerts on new contracts and industry reports, to conduct and acquire new business.
