Proud Moment: “As an Outsourcing Leader, it was rewarding to lead a magnificent team to build out and scaling the EY Cybersecurity as a Service offering and seeing it grow into a mature service for EY clients. The establishment of the EY Americas Cybersecurity Center in downtown Dallas marks a significant milestone in the cyber defense sector. This state-of-the-art facility has generated over 300 highly specialized job opportunities, bolstering the local economy. Operating 24/7, the center offers crucial services such as advanced threat detection and response, exposure management, data protection, and digital identity management for EY's managed services clientele.
Furthermore, the Dallas center features a Cyber Academy dedicated to the professional development of both seasoned EY cybersecurity experts and recent recruits. This training hub imparts a comprehensive range of cybersecurity skills, fostering a skilled and adaptable workforce capable of addressing the ever-evolving landscape of digital threats. As a result, the EY Americas Cybersecurity Center represents a strategic investment in the field, positioning the organization as a leading force in safeguarding critical information and infrastructure in the digital age.. The cyber academy is critical to the future of developing talent to address the 2 million-person shortage that is predicted by 2020.”
