Washington, D.C. – The National Cyber Security Alliance’s (NCSA’s) director of government affairs and special projects, Kristin Judge, was recognized by SC Magazine as one of its “Women in IT Security: Influencers” on Monday. Judge was one of five women selected for this honor, which was featured in the magazine’s July Women in IT Security issue.
“As we continue to understand the critical role of end-users in the security ecosystem, it is important to…highlight those working in the education and awareness space,” Ben De Bont, vice president & CISO, IBM Watson & IBM Cloud, says regarding Judge.
Judge’s position focuses on teaching consumers, government officials and businesspeople how to protect sensitive data – often higher-risk groups that are not as familiar with cybersecurity.
“Our team is making a difference every day, and being a part of such a dynamic group of people is rewarding,” Judge says of NCSA. “On a larger scale, being a part of the national ‘family’ of cybersecurity education and awareness professionals inspires me every day. There is a true public-private partnership in cyber that I enjoy being a part of.”
