We're redefining what it looks like to be in cybersecurity.


Hi, I'm Candace Williams

This is my Story 

My fascination with technology sparked at a young age, I remember vividly when my dad brought home our first family Windows PC. I was captivated by games like Solitaire and Minesweeper, but my real adventure began when it broke. As a ten-year-old, I spent hours trying to fix it, driven by curiosity and a firm belief that I could figure it out. That same determination and willingness to collaborate and connect is what fuels my approach today.

With a career spanning nearly two decades, my journey has been diverse and enriching. From my early days in the Department of Defense to impactful roles in the Aerospace & Defense Industry, each experience has deepened my understanding and passion for cybersecurity. 

Beyond technical expertise, I am deeply committed to diversifying the cybersecurity field. As a woman of color, I recognize the unique value that diverse perspectives bring to solving complex problems. My mission is to increase the presence of women, especially women of color, in cybersecurity, driving innovative solutions and building a more inclusive industry.

Join me in this quest to navigate, understand, and conquer the challenges of cybersecurity. Together, we'll build secure, resilient futures for businesses and create a more diverse, dynamic cybersecurity community.
