1. Tell us about your role at Darktrace. What are the cyber threat issues you work on in a typical day?
As SVP of Strategic Engagements and Threats, I speak with senior and C-suite leaders daily about what matters most to their businesses and operations and help outline risk and Cybersecurity strategies to strengthen business resilience. I focus on explaining current threat trends and emerging and next-generation threats, working closely with the Darktrace Subject Matter Experts team.
Today, one of my main projects is growing and maturing Darktrace’s Federal Division, which launched earlier this month. I am very excited to be bringing AI-based cyber defense capabilities to the U.S. government.
I also engage with the broader security leadership community through Executive Roundtables by participating or moderating. Last week, I led a webinar discussing the cyber impacts of the Ukraine-Russia conflict moving forward, including what the everyday CISO needs to consider and what our customers most need to know.
2. You are a former CIA Operations Chief. Let us in on what you have learned from that experience of yours.
The most critical lesson I learned at the CIA is how to work and collaborate as a team. I learned the importance of communications across an organization, both north-south and east-west. I have always been drawn to applying next-generation technologies to maximize business potential, not just creating the next cool, shiny thing.
