Candidate Biography

Candy has been working in Cybersecurity for over 30 years, growing up within the profession. She’s held several positions as CISO, consults with international organizations, and is considered one of cybersecurity’s valued thought leaders. Candy has received numerous awards, including Distinguished Fellow of the ISSA, ranking her as one of the top 1% in the association and is a member of the ISSA Hall of Fame. Candy is often asked to speak at various events and two that remain most memorable are being a featured speaker at a United Nations event and receiving an invitation to the Offices of the White House. Candy’s passion is demonstrated through her work in the ISSA including being the current International President, Chief Architect for the Cyber Security Career Lifecycle and long-standing dedicated member of the International Board. She is also the inaugural President and past Board Member of the ISSA Education Foundation. Candy’s home chapters are New England and New Hampshire Chapters. Through Candy’s leadership and direction, the Association has regained back-office accountability and stability in business processes, substantial improvements of technology (website, financial and membership management systems), ongoing chapter leaders support with improved communications, tools and processes such as automated chapter payments - all of which enable our chapters success, and most recently the ability to sustain a healthy organization and uninterrupted support system through our unprecedented times brought on by the pandemic.


Candidate Goals

Through Candy’s leadership and direction, the Association has regained back-office accountability and stability in business processes, substantial improvements of technology (website, financial and membership management systems), ongoing chapter leaders support with improved communications, tools and processes such as automated chapter payments - all of which enable our chapters success, and most recently the ability to sustain a healthy organization and uninterrupted support system through our unprecedented times brought on by the pandemic. The past two years have focused on formalizing processes in order to run the ISSA International as a business, as was promised in my first campaign as President. Now, let’s make ISSA Shine! If re-elected I plan to: - Continue to focus on stability and accountability; - Emphasize a culture of service, continuous improvement, and collaboration; - Ensure open and bi-directional communications; - Deliver the tools which chapters need to succeed; - Increase member value through services that are relevant to member’s needs; - Continue the use innovation and technology to deliver services to chapters and members; - Expand on our partnerships with organizations such as IAPP and CSA to drive our profession forward based on research, needs identified, and collaboration; - Through the ESG/ISSA research study, identify our collective challenges and offer actionable solutions for our members; and - Celebrate our members and their accomplishments in order to make it an association you are proud to say you are a member of.
