Marcelle Lee
Threat Researcher, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions
Marcelle Lee is a threat researcher with LookingGlass Cyber Solutions (LGC), an adjunct professor in digital forensics and network security, and a provider of security consulting and training services through her own company, Fractal Security Group.  Before joining the LGC team, she worked as a malware analyst for the Department of Defense, and prior to that was full-time staff in the cybersecurity program at her local community college in Arnold, Md.
In her current role as a threat researcher, Lee responds to customer queries about technical topics and works on projects to grow the collection posture and knowledge base of her team. She's also digging into some research on cryptojacking miners and observing related mining activity, in addition to researching, analyzing, and cataloging malware for incorporation in ScoutPrime. Lee writes technical reports for customer distribution and blogs for the LGC website, and says she's especially fond of tracking down and analyzing phishing campaigns.
'What I've learned in my security career is that you never stop learning,' Lee says. 'With regard to goals, I want to become more proficient in both YARA and Python and would like to attempt the OSCP certification in 2019.'
Lee also plans to continue her volunteer outreach efforts and become more involved in diversity-related organizations. She intends to continue sharing her expertise at industry conferences; this year, you can see her upcoming talks at DEF CON 26 and HackerHalted. In doing this, she hopes to inspire more women to consider careers in the security field.
'I plan to continue submitting to conferences, as I think the best way I can help get more women into the field is by being a role model and mentor. Speaking at conferences affords me the opportunity to demonstrate that women in tech do indeed exist and can even look like 'normal' middle-aged moms - which I am, except for maybe the normal part,' she jokes.

Extroverts?
I have worked with and reported to female coworkers and leaders. The leaders in this article seem to have a common trait of being extroverts, no difference in comparison to their male counterparts. However, a lot of unsung female heros are not extroverts and work diligiently with their team members and customers. They do not want publicity. To me, they are also leaders...
