Amélie E. Koran

Amélie Koran (@webjedi) has performed the role of n00b to executive in 20 “short” years but has enjoyed every minute of learning and sharing ideas along her rather circuitous track. As a Deputy CIO within the Federal government, she’s helped develop national cybersecurity policy, perform workforce planning and development, but also respond and handle major security incidents at major NGOs, Fortune 125, and other organizations. She can be found regularly volunteering at local DC area security conferences and groups, trying to mentor others, and give back to the community that has given so much to her. She misses the daily hunt tracking of a SOC but also likes not having to ever really be on-call any more and getting regular sleep.
