The amazing Britta Glade!

Welcome to episode 10 of “My Cyber Why”! — a glimpse into the life and work of experts from around the world who have dedicated themselves to protecting cyberspace. We’re bonusing this one because it’s a great discussion but we had a few issues with the video.

There’s no shortage of scary headlines about the latest hacks and malware releases. But what doesn’t make the headlines are the inspiring stories of the people who work every day to make the cyber world a safer place. These are their stories and cybersecurity is their passion.

In each episode guests answer four questions:

1. Who are you?

2. What do you do in cyber?

3. Why do you do it?

4. How can people get involved or learn more?

Today’s guests is Britta Glade, tennis aficionado, RSEOC, (Real Security Expert of Orange County) and Director, Content and Curation at RSA Conference. Britta worked in Analyst Relations at RSA for 13 years. And as a research analyst that worked with Britta to schedule briefings and confirm technical details for reports — can say she was one of the very best Analyst Relation professionals in the biz! About six years ago, Britta took on the very challenging role of content management and curation for the RSA Conference, the largest (cyber)security conference in the world. If you’ve ever wanted a sneak peak behind the curtain into what it’s like to program and manage the hundreds of talks and sessions at RSA Conference, this is the podcast for you!
