Lisa Plaggemier
Chief Evangelist
Infosec

Why nominated: Lisa Plaggemier entered the cybersecurity community after holding marketing roles at the likes of Ford Motor Company. Having started this path with CDK Global where she was the director of security culture, risk and client advocacy, she found that leveraging her years of global marketing and advertising effectively enabled her to convince employees, partners and clients the importance of bettering their cybersecurity knowledge and nix bad habits. As she established training and awareness programs for all levels of the organization, she also bolstered the reputation of CDK’s Global Security Organization as an industry go-to for creating solid and easy-to-understand and transparent communications on security. Her acumen and talent at making sometimes challenging and technical cybersecurity issues resonate with people having different levels of knowledge has resulted in an array of initiatives that are reaping benefits for industry practitioners, executive leaders, end-users and, ultimately, the organizations to which they belong.

Profile: Now at Infosec, she has duplicated and advanced those initiatives, creating yet another thought-leadership program driven by training and awareness offerings that go a long way to making security a part of the culture. By enabling employees to play a role in helping to safeguard their organizations, she helps to simplify security for a range of individuals as she deepens their engagement and knowledge. As a result, she shares the techniques and methods she’s practiced and refined over the years at industry conference, during peer-to-peer events, and through webcasts, podcasts and more.
