ESnet’s Greg Bell to Discuss Networking, Cybersercurity at Centers for Disease Control  


ESnet Director Greg Bell will give an invited talk on “Cyber Security and Data Mobility in a World of Ultrafast Networks and Data-Intensive Science” to senior IT managers and security staff at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta on Wednesday, June 4. The CDC has just completed the first phase of its “Research Grade Network” upgrade project, which was significantly influenced by ESnet designs and recommendations. Because the CDC has staff in 50+ countries, effective use of global networks is key to its success.

Bell was invited to give the talk by CDC Chief Technology Officer Jaspal Sagoo after they met when Bell gave a keynote talk on “Networking for Discovery” at Scaling Networks Securely and Cost Effectively, a one-day program targeted at government network providers and IT staff on Feb. 20, 2014.
