I started out in security because I wanted to influence how people's personal information was protected. Every customer deserves to have a Security organization who’s advocating for the protection of their data. Data is everything: it’s our credit, it’s our medical history and it’s our private moments. Customers shouldn’t have to worry that every time they give sensitive data to a company, their information is misused or at risk of being stolen. When on the learning path about security, I’ve practiced security in different environments: t data providers, mortgage companies and Bay Area startups. I’ve worked for managers who taught me valuable lessons that I’ve passed along to security teams I’ve lead.
