1. Tell us about your role at NuData Security?
As a Director of Software Engineering at NuData Security, A Mastercard Company, I leverage my knowledge of cloud architecture to reduce consumer friction online and design a more inclusive connected world.
I am responsible for software development in the digital device space (including the internet of things) and leading the team that develops the NuData cloud platform. I look to identify design issues within a solution and work closely with stakeholders to overcome them, strengthen the solution, and increase customer satisfaction. I focus on the consumer experience, product optimization, and fraud detection strategies that enable innovative product solutions.
In addition to my Mastercard role, I am also an AWS Academy Accredited Instructor working as an online instructor with BCIT Part-time Studies and UBC Extended Learning.
2. Can you tell us about your journey into this industry?
I started my journey into the tech field during high school – working on a school website. This evolved into building a learning management system, enabling a shift into supporting online learning well over a decade before the pandemic pushing online learning into the spotlight. I got hands-on experience managing computer labs and I.T. administration of devices during this period. I then went to BCIT, where I completed a Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems.
3. How do you think technology is impacting cybersecurity?

Organizations that follow basic security hygiene – such as the benchmarks maintained by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) – are typically well-positioned to be cyber resilient. Often smaller, underfunded teams struggle to keep up with the basics of updating software.
