Erika Voss is an Information Security, Risk, and Compliance executive who partners with CEOs, executives and the broader security and academic communities to grow their personal and professional brands on why security is more than just a data point. After spending nearly, a decade working in public sector, Erika knows what truly drives people to talk, communicate, and share how to best protect, detect, and solve for the security flavor of the week; what is it today, “threat hunting?” It’s how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding back to them, whether technical or not. You must engage with your audience, help them understand the risk and how to push forward.
