Jon Walton – Chief Information Officer, San Mateo County

On this week’s Silicon Valley Insider, host Keith Koo’s special guest is Jon Walton, Chief Information Officer of the County of San Mateo.

Jon discusses his roots studying environmental science and how that led to a storied career in information technology right here in Silicon Valley. One of Jon’s previous roles as being the CIO of San Francisco.

Keith asks Jon what is top of mind for a CIO serving a community that is located directly in Silicon Valley and San Francisco, the things that “keep him up at night” as well as what his passions are. We find out that Jon loves cars and is able to “unplug” every once in awhile.

On this week’s Cyber-tip, Keith does a deep dive into what happened at the Iowa DNC caucus and how important it is to get the right supplier to develop an app like the one used during Iowa’s voting process.

On the Pivot, Keith and Jon discuss what’s in store for the future of technology.
