Dr. Alissa Johnson, aka Dr. Jay, is the Chief Information Security Officer for Xerox Corporation. She is also the former Deputy Chief Information Officer of the Executive Office of the President. Dr. Jay is an IT strategist and visionary with experience in government and private industry.
As the world goes to a paper-less society, Xerox Corporation is focusing on companies’ document workflow. They work to ensure that all of these assets are protected, crossing many boundaries. Dr. Jay’s department looks at both the offensive and defensive aspects of cyber security in order to anticipate all of the things that ‘might happen tomorrow and five years from now’. She describes how organizations get billions of attempts of hacking a month.

Her advice is to ‘protect the crown jewels’ – the critical information in an organization, for example intellectual property and passwords.
