About this Episode

Christopher Kennedy joined the Marines as a communications officer, and almost by accident wound up in cybersecurity. Cybersecurity was still a nascent industry then, but the experience served him well over his career.

He’s worked in high profile cybersecurity gigs across multiple vertical markets, including government and finance, and also in organizations big and small, with companies like AttackIQ and Northrup Grumman. Today he’s a senior cybersecurity executive at a large financial institution

While we’ve covered cybersecurity a couple times on the show, there is opportunity here because it’s a growing sector. And Chris has a truly unique background and a lot of stories, so I think listeners will enjoy it.
