Lauren is the first person I’ve interviewed in the Cyber Security and Information Security space. This is an EXPLODING space that seems to be poised to continue to grow for a very long time. Lauren makes the case about how Veterans - regardless of your background - are well suited to this expanding field, which is very mission and team centric. There are going to be 3.5 Million unfilled security jobs by 2020… this is a BIG opening and opportunity for Veterans. We talk about how Cyber Security may meet a Veterans need for purpose and for a team-centric environment.
Lauren heads up Federal Programs & Cloud Alliances at FireEye, a company that protects customers from the impact and consequences of cyber attacks. She started out at the Naval Academy, after which she earned her Master’s Degree in Political Science & Government at the University of College Park Maryland. She served as an Officer in the Navy 5 years before joining PCM-G as a Security Systems Architect.
