Fidelity Investments Speakers Series Features Susan Whittemore

Please join us on February 28th at 6 p.m. in room 1231 in Engineering Building 2 for the second talk in the Spring 2017 Fidelity Investments “Leadership in Technology” Speakers Series.
Our special guest speaker will be Susan Whittemore, VP Technology Risk Management at Fidelity Investments.  Her talk topic will be “The Business of Cybersecurity.”

Whittemore is Vice President of Technology Risk Management for Fidelity Investments’ Enterprise Cybersecurity group. She has worked for Fidelity for nine years in a variety of cybersecurity leadership roles. She has 22 years of experience in risk and cybersecurity and currently leads a consulting team responsible for ensuring appropriate cyber controls are built into new technologies. Her leadership skills and experience in both financial services and retail environments have helped firms reduce risk and comply with industry and regulatory programs through comprehensive programs. Whittemore earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Worcester State College.  

: Cybersecurity is no longer just a technology problem; it has become a business differentiator. As the topic is discussed around corporate boardrooms and government task forces, the face of Cybersecurity professionals is changing as well. Ms. Whittemore will share her experiences and observations she’s made throughout her career of the different facets of that new face, highlighting how non-traditional skills now apply in the area of Cybersecurity.
The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is available on Centennial Campus after 5 pm.  For directions and more information, click here.
These lectures have been approved by the CSC Graduate Oversight Committee to count toward the required lectures for graduate students.

[Editor's Note - Jillian Munro was originally scheduled to deliver this talk, but an unavoidable scheduling conflict has arisen. The talk topic, however, will remain the same.]
