Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable - In Security and Your Professional Life (Part 1)

About This Episode

We’re excited to welcome back to the podcast Maria Roat, founder of MA Roat Consulting and former U.S. Deputy Federal Chief Information Officer. For this part 1 discussion, we double-click into the cyber workforce gap and how to attract diverse skillsets to the industry, introducing STEM earlier in education, understanding how to nurture non-traditional learners and the awesome experience veterans bring to supporting the cyber mission.

She also shares insights from her decades of experience as an IT leader on the criticality of taking risks, being comfortable with the uncomfortable, and the power of mentors. We had so much to talk about we made this a two-part episode!
