Robert B. Dix Jr.
Vice President of Government Affairs
Juniper Networks

Dix is active in a number of collaborative government and industry efforts, including the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee and the Partnership for Critical Infrastructure Security.

He also helped develop the National Cyber Incident Response Plan and assisted in creating scenarios for Cyber Storm III, a national cyber threat exercise scheduled for September.

“By championing truly open, collaborative solutions to information sharing and joint decision-making as essential to our continued cybersecurity, Dix has helped to change entrenched behavior patterns, political power structures, and status quo approaches to enhance industry and government collaboration,” said Karen Evans, former administrator of e-government and information technology at the Office of Management and Budget and now a partner at KE&T Partners.
