Diane has been a Technologist for over 20 years focusing on security since 9/11. She has worked in roles such as Help Desk, Pen Tester, Sys Admin, Network Engineer, Privacy Manager, Security Analytics, and Enterprise Security Architect. Her industry experience includes Retail, Healthcare, Technology, Utility, and Local Government. These roles and industry experience have garnered a deep understanding of security architecture and the underlying technologies and business processes. When not analyzing logs, hacker techniques, or packet captures; Diane is found with family, traveling, creating crafty things or playing games on and off the net. Mentoring Sec504 is exciting to Diane because it is one of the SANS courses that delves into the mindset of the attacker and often the student will leave the class with a new perspective.
