Give us a brief overview of the path that led to your current role.

I started my career in the IT Service Desk and quickly rose up the ranks of system administration and security. One of my early projects was to design an IP chains firewall on Linux, and I have not looked back since then.

What is one of your guiding leadership principles?

Inspire and motivate the team to do its best.

What is the greatest challenge CISOs face today, and how are you addressing it?

Nurture talent and empower them to deliver creative solutions. Talent management is a tough challenge in the limited resource pool in the Midwest region. My approach is to recruit young, motivated individuals and help them shape their path in cyber security, while contributing to the organization.

What is the key to success for someone just starting out as a CISO?

Communicate, communicate and communicate. C-level needs to communicate and, dare I say, over communicate with all the stakeholders, executive leadership and the Board. With the evolving risk landscape, our response needs to evolve and everyone needs to be on the same page for a successful, enterprise-wide, information security program.

How do you measure success as a leader?

Deliver results where they matter.

What is the value of being a member of the Evanta community?

In the Evanta community, we collaborate on pervasive issues and share success stories, or tales of caution, to elevate fellow CISOs in the region.
