Chris Jackson is a Distinguished Systems Engineer in the Cisco World Wide Sales and Partner Training organization. Chris is focused on all aspects of Cisco Data Center and Cloud from not only a technology perspective but through thought leadership in helping Cisco and customers better leverage the business transformational aspects these technologies provide. He holds dual CCIEs in security and routing and switching, CISA, CISSP, ITIL v3, seven SANS certifications, and a bachelor's degree in business administration. Residing in Franklin, Tennessee, Chris enjoys tinkering with RC drones, robotics, and anything else that can be programmed to do his bidding. In addition, he is a black belt in Taekwondo and a rabid Star Wars fan, and has a ridiculous collection of Legos. His wife, Barbara, and three children, Caleb, Sydney, and Savannah, are the true joys of his life and proof that not everything has to plug in to a wall outlet to be fun.
