The Value of the Enlisted Mindset in Cybersecurity With Jennifer Reed of AWS
A big key to Jenn Reed’s successful career? The enlisted mindset, she says. In the military, you don’t have all the information you need to get the job done. You have to understand the objective, then figure out how to solve the problem on your own. Jenn and Gene talk about why this type of mindset is so critical in cybersecurity, her advice for those who want to break into cyber, and what cybersecurity leaders can do to set up underrepresented populations for success in this industry.
Jenn Reed has more than 25 years of product management and engineering experience in cloud networking infrastructure, security, governance, risk, and compliance across both the private and public sectors. She is currently Principal Partner SA, SPE at AWS and was formerly CISO at Aviatrix. Jenn served her country in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1995-2000 and again in 2003 during the Iraq war.
