Episode Info

Episode Info:

By Sean Martin and Marco Ciappelli The InfoSec industry is a fairly friendly industry; one where people from all over the world and all walks of life enjoy getting together—both online and in person—to talk about the latest threats, challenges, and trends. Many have even become friends, and even make it a point to connect outside of formal cybersecurity settings to discuss family life, hobbies, and a variety of other personal topics. Marco and I feel this same sense of camaraderie as we connect and engage with the community. We feel fortunate to have made so many friends from so many places—with so many things to talk about. While we certainly don’t want to take away from the greatness that is represented by each and every person that is part of this community, there are some people that consistently light up the room and our minds each time we see them… a big smile and a warm hug is usually the not-so-secret salute. We cherish these times, and we sure cherish every time we see and get to talk with Chloé Messdaghi. As we were reviewing our already-recorded set of podcasts and our upcoming calendar, we realized that we never captured Chloé’s story. After a moment of shock and disappointment, we quickly remediated the situation. What you are about to listen to now is Chloé's life adventure: her past adventures, her present InfoSec life, and her vision for the future—all of this sprinkled with a few pinches of Chloe’ that we think will warm your heart. Here's a short preview: - After graduating from UC Davis, how working for the UN to help educate orphaned kids in Cameroon will eventually lead her back to, and shape her future in, technology and cybersecurity - Having an interest in how the brain works to begin exploring how we might fight terrorism using cognitive science - How this understanding of the brain functioning can help changing the way we think about ourselves and think about cybersecurity (bad actors and victims, alike) - Her founding of WoSec and her efforts to bring more women and equality into the InfoSec community - What we can learn from our dogs, foxes... and from the book "The Little Prince" This is a story about an InfoSec professional, coming from a non-security background, doing amazing things—in and for the InfoSec industry (and beyond)—while also paying it forward so that many can join and enjoy a successful career in this industry. Have a listen. Get inspired. And do your part by sharing it with your friends that might be interested in being part of a mission to keep our cyber world safe. _________________ Learn more about this column's sponsors: Devo: Find more An InfoSec Life stories on ITSPmagazine:
