InfoSteph, or Stephanie, never knew she would be here. Where is here? Co-hosting a podcast weekly with a great friend. Years ago, she attended (and ultimately dropped out of) Journalism school at the Howard University. She felt that the program and the occupation was a little too confining for her creative expression and decided to transition to tech to challenge herself and to pay off her student loans. Whodathunk that she’d end up brushing off those journalism skills years later as a podcaster and co-host?
For her day job, InfoSteph serves as a regional information security analyst. Outside of work, however, InfoSteph has filled her life with all kinds of cool activities. She serves as a Lead for WoSEC Houston and a Lead for WISP DEFCON 2019. She has also started speaking at conferences this year, setting a personal goal for three speaking gigs for 2019 (the number is now four booked for 2019, two down!). She attends school full time, hoping to obtain her Bachelor’s by the end of the fall. She had the honor of being a delegate for Security Field Day 2. She writes blog posts on her website, StephAndSec.com, which is also her side business. And she is working on a course for LinkedIn Learning on Social Engineering and Security Awareness.
Outside of that, InfoSteph loves spending time with family and friends who bring good vibes only. She tweets, she ‘Grams and she reads up on ways to hack the mind.
