College and cogs
Ah, the tragedy of college!  Good thing for him he didn't pick that -- or he'd probably have wound up being a cog somewhere.

What this really comes down to in terms of career success advice is to be unique -- because, as Coco Chanel said, it's the only way to be essential.

Thanks Marilyn.  They're fun for me, too.   People have found their way to the CISO position in so many different ways -- the drawback is that it's hard to say how to get on the right career path, but the upside is that there are fascinating stories behind every CISO.

Fascinating journey, fascinating story
I really enjoy these profiles, Sara. These CISOs certainly defy the stereoptypes.  And what a great job description:

If he wasn't a CISO, Potter says might be a cultural anthropologist, because he's intrigued by how people learn and what makes communities tick.
