View descriptionShare

Lisa Jiggetts knew from an early age that she was going to be in tech and cyber. A navy veteran who started off as a cook, she always found herself gravitating towards technology. She is also the Founder & Board of Director of the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, a non-profit that is dedicated to increasing the opportunities and advancement for women in cybersecurity. Check out her journey into the cybersecurity field.


  • Originally a cook in the military, then migrated to information security.
  • Looked for opportunities to transition into information security by talking to people in and outside her social network.
  • Networking can be hard, but it will turn in your favor.
  • Lisa is an introvert, but knows how to become an extrovert when needed.


  • "When you're starting out, you don't necessarily get into the area you want to be in—you got to work your way up."
  • “That's the biggest thing you can do. I think is networking because somebody knows somebody."
  • "So I got all these certifications… I read a book and pass. What is it to me personally? That didn't tell me, you know, how to do anything. They get you in the door."
  • "[Networking is] hard, but just do it because, in the end, it's gonna turn out in your favor."
