Keeping the lights on is the bottom line for LES, and the security of the critical infrastructure is a key part in meeting that goal. As cyber security manager, my primary job is ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of LES data. I work across the company to train our people in secure practices, deploy and monitor tools that keep the bad guys out of our networks, and develop policies and procedures to keep our data and people safe from harm in the cyber world. Prior to coming to LES, I worked for the Department of Defense where it was necessary to constantly tweak systems or update rules to match a new policy. It was a fairly narrow role – more like tuning an engine. Here, I have a broad spectrum of tasks, from risk analysis, enterprise design, rollout of new tools, etc. My job is dynamic – more like building an engine.
