Kayne McGladrey, CISSP is a senior member of the IEEE. In his 20+ year career, he has worked with company leadership at numerous Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies in developing and implementing effective policies to reduce cyber threat. He's also the go-to person for multiple media outlets and a spokesperson for IEEE’s Public Visibility Initiative.
The modern company has an implicit social contract to protect the data entrusted to it. As a cybersecurity professional, his role is to advise companies on how to uphold that social contract by managing risks and deterring and denying threat actors. His consultative approach is the result of decades of experience working with Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies.
The ability to fluently speak the languages of both business and technology and effectively communicate complex concepts to non-technical audiences has not only facilitated conversation with company leadership in developing and implementing effective policies to reduce cyber threat, it has made him the go-to person for multiple media outlets and a spokesperson for IEEE’s Public Visibility Initiative.
One of his career priorities is to inspire under-represented communities to pursue careers in cybersecurity. Talent is not limited by geography or background. Because he looks beyond the usual circles for talent, trust their abilities, and has an eagerness to help people succeed, he has been able to build effective teams despite the continued challenges of low unemployment in cybersecurity careers.
