AI Tech Park Interview with Marcus Fowler, SVP, Strategic Engagements, and Threats at Darktrace
1. Tell us about your role at Darktrace. What are the cyber threat issues you work on in a typical day?
As SVP of Strategic Engagements and Threats, I speak with senior and C-suite leaders daily about what matters most to their businesses and operations and help outline risk and Cybersecurity strategies to strengthen business resilience. I focus on explaining current threat trends and emerging and next-generation threats, working closely with the Darktrace Subject Matter Experts team.
Today, one of my main projects is growing and maturing Darktrace’s Federal Division, which launched earlier this month. I am very excited to be bringing AI-based cyber defense capabilities to the U.S. government.
I also engage with the broader security leadership community through Executive Roundtables by participating or moderating. Last week, I led a webinar discussing the cyber impacts of the Ukraine-Russia conflict moving forward, including what the everyday CISO needs to consider and what our customers most need to know.
2. You are a former CIA Operations Chief. Let us in on what you have learned from that experience of yours.
The most critical lesson I learned at the CIA is how to work and collaborate as a team. I learned the importance of communications across an organization, both north-south and east-west. I have always been drawn to applying next-generation technologies to maximize business potential, not just creating the next cool, shiny thing.
