STO203 Who We Are Cisco's Trust Transformation Office (TTO) is responsible for ensuring that Cisco embeds security, trust, data protection and privacy into all Cisco strategies and solutions. TTO builds industry-leading trust and transparency with customers, governments, and partners globally. We do this by understanding customer security and privacy requirements and then rallying Cisco Sales, Engineering, Government Affairs and Legal to meet these requirements. On this team you will shape the future direction of networks, security, collaboration, and applications. Together, we will build a better and more secure internet and help to define the future of trust. Within TTO, the Global Trends and Security Analyst serves as a trusted advisor by providing geopolitical insights to senior leaders. The analyst will represent Cisco and work alongside cybersecurity threat intelligence analysts, engineers, regulatory specialists, and business teams to help leaders understand critical global national security issues and risks relevant to Cisco's business globally. Who You Are You are the kind of person who seeks out hard problems to solve and loves sharing ideas with smart and idealistic people. You want your work to create genuine change in the way the world thinks about and uses technology. You are a doer-someone who turns ideas into actions-and you are comfortable taking the initiative. You embrace the opportunities that come with a dynamic environment and are comfortable with change. You are a great listener, keep your ego in check (even when you strive to attain big goals), and know how to partner with the people around you to create results. Maturity, effective communication skills, a collaborative approach, and a strong curiosity about technology and world events are important.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do - you can't put us in a box! But "Digital Transformation" is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.) Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward. So, you have colorful hair? Don't care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That's cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing?
