My cloud Learning Journey: Part 4 “Rocky Mountain High Security”

Chris Steffen is an Evangelist. He may be the world’s only agnostic evangelist. Based out of Denver, Colorado, he had not been with HPE too long when someone scanned his CV a second time and asked a pertinent question: “Why is it, with all your security experience, that we have you in the Compete Team?” Chris was happy enough checking out competitors’ solutions and working on new HPE ideas, but he had always felt that the new role being offered was one he was bound to one day fall into. Chris was about to become an Evangelist.

I laughed when Chris told me his role in the company, until I realized that Chief Evangelist for HPE Cloud Security was not a euphemism but an actual job title. I thought he was just having fun. After all, it is difficult to know whether someone is pulling your leg when they are the kind of person who recently blogged about how the downfall of the Empire in the Star Wars films was as a result of poor data security measures implemented in their computing systems rather than triumph of a righteous son over his power-mad, estranged father. (Apologies, maybe I should have put a spoiler alert there, but I’ll just assume that anyone reading this blog is the kind of person who has seen the films!)

As it happens, an Evangelist is a very real thing. And, in Chris’ case, it is about getting out there and sharing “a specific, positive message” with a range of people on a variety of subjects. He can talk tech nuts and bolts with engineers or the ROI benefits of security with CIOs.
