Security Confidential S2 E10 Karen Hough

Dark Rhino Security\’s Security Confidential is honored to have Karen Hough, the founder, and CEO of ImprovEdge back as a guest. This past year has presented companies and people with severe never before navigated challenges. For many, 2020 could not end soon enough. 2021 is a new beginning. Improvisation and resilience are themes from last year that carry into this year and will be with us well into the future. Cybersecurity is about helping companies become more resilient. Becoming resilient requires us to become more comfortable with improvisation. Karen helps us navigate this. The discussion focuses on improv, overcoming preconceived notions, and being resilient. There is advice and exercises that would benefit all.

Karen is a #1 Amazon bestselling author, recipient of the Silver Stevie Award for Most Innovative Business of the Year, and won both the WNBA Inspiring Woman Award and the WBENC PitchPivot Grand Prize. She is a philanthropist, Yale grad, avid hiker and lives in Ohio with her husband and 3 children. Her books include: “The Improvisation Edge: Secrets to Building Trust and Radical Collaboration at Work”, “Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever: Break the Rules, Make Mistakes and Win Them Over”, and “Go With It: Embrace the Unexpected to Drive Change”. We are also joined by Tyler Smith and Jordan Graham in the discussion.
