Lisa Jiggetts knew from an early age that she was going to be in tech and cyber. A navy veteran who started off as a cook, she always found herself gravitating towards technology. She is also the Founder & Board of Director of the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, a non-profit that is dedicated to increasing the opportunities and advancement for women in cybersecurity. Check out her journey into the cybersecurity field. Notes Originally a cook in the military, then migrated to information security. Looked for opportunities to transition into information security by talking to people in and outside her social network. Networking can be hard, but it will turn in your favor. Lisa is an introvert, but knows how to become an extrovert when needed. Quotes "When you're starting out, you don't necessarily get into the area you want to be in—you got to work your way up." “That's the biggest thing you can do. I think is networking because somebody knows somebody." "So I got all these certifications… I read a book and pass. What is it to me personally? That didn't tell me, you know, how to do anything. They get you in the door." "[Networking is] hard, but just do it because, in the end, it's gonna turn out in your favor."
