Update: Security Again!
The field of security seems to be something I naturally gravitate to. It is exciting, always changing, and challenging.
I did not run security teams at D2L, yet my team ended up building a large part of the security infrastructure to support changes in architecture. Leading that project was fun and I am proud of my team and and what we delivered. It felt natural to be talking about security protocols and attack vectors again.
When I decided to leave D2L to take the next step in my career I didn't go out seeking a company in the field of security. However, an opportunity to run the R&D department at a security company arose. Of the companies I interviewed with it was the best fit for my skills and their needs.
I just finish week three as the director of research and development at Arctic Wolf Networks. Working in security again feels like coming home.
I am excited and happy that I am able to combine what I excel at, building teams, fostering innovation, and collaboration, with my love of security once again!
