OpenText CEO & CTO Mark J. Barrenechea Joined by Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper

Waterloo, ON – 2019-11-12 –OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today opened OpenText Enfuse 2019, bringing together cross-functional experts to address the challenges of securing the modern enterprise. At Enfuse, attendees will learn proactive strategies to find, respond to, and eliminate threats – before they become headlines.

“Conventional approaches are no longer sufficient to secure the modern enterprise in Industry 4.0,” said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO & CTO. “For information to remain a strategic advantage, it must be protected. Enfuse is our opportunity to convene leaders from the information security, legal and law-enforcement industries to share modern approaches to security that are effective in today’s zero-trust world.”

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper will close the conference with a conversation on the scope and scale of cyberthreats to US national and economic security. Director Clapper will discuss the threats Americans are facing, how the intelligence community is responding, and what this will mean as the world becomes more digital and the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes more common-place.
