Started IT career in 1990s teaching grandparents to use email and Word. Graduated from FHSU with a networking degree in 2003. Went through Sprint’s internship program. Because of my networking background, I was provided the opportunity to deploy firewalls while working at Payless Shoe Source, which provided the path to InfoSec. For the last 16 years, I have worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas. Today, I balance multiple roles: Security Architect, Enterprise Architect, and AppSec team member, and I volunteer with IETF and ARIN.

The mobile apps controlling the smart homes may provide convenience to quickly manage the security camera, garage door, house alarm, etc. However, do they hold up against modern malicious actors?
