My military experience and training helped my career in more ways than any education or certification could. The personnel management, prioritization, leadership and process analysis techniques that I’ve learned throughout my career will continue to be used daily until I pass from this world. My career has been completely shaped by my ability to adapt both personally and professionally. Keeping that perspective helps to drive my career onwards and upwards.
I’ve gotten to where I am today without a degree, however, I’m now actively seeking my degree in IT Management followed by a Master’s in Business Administration. I’ve also received my Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) which is useful in grabbing attention and moving your resume to the top of a stack for an information security position.
In my role today I support the Information Security Officer of Enterprise Technology Group. These roles include maintaining awareness and oversight of the security posture, and compliance with industry governance in our group. I personally drive our security initiatives forward - working to increase our posture in order to allow our many customers to safely conduct business across our integrated systems.
