One chooses their
career path for different reasons – whether it be following in a parent’s
footsteps or an innate desire to help others. I was inspired by a chemistry
teacher to pursue a career in chemical engineering and found success in
engineering nuclear weapons for Atomic Energy Commission, securing SCADA
systems that controlled vital resources such as the Hoover Dam, and enhancing
information and software security standards through credentials and education.
vast career, I’ve seen computers shrink from room-sized to pocket-sized with
more power in one device today than throughout an entire operating system
twenty years ago. In 2002, I had to disable Internet capabilities from everyone
in my agency [the U.S. Department of the Interior] because of a judges’ order.

originally in my purview until my organization was sued for $76 billion
dollars: That staggering blow would make anyone more focused on security! But
now cyber security is one of the most rapidly growing industries with a near 0%
unemployment rate due to the myriad of threats. Application vulnerabilities, in
particular, was identified as the number one threat in the recently released 2013
(ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study . The problem
originates from the acceptance of insecure software as a cost of doing
business. If a car company put out a car with faulty brakes, they would have to
recall all of those vehicles. Software companies are not held to the same
standard and our Certified Security Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP®)
credential was developed to address this need and to consider security
throughout the entire software development lifecycle.
