Burcu Isiktas

Systems Engineering Manager

Security GVSE

I’m an SE Manager located in Ankara, Turkey. I have been in Cisco since 2006 and had multiple different roles in sales and customer success teams.

I’m an Electronics Engineer with a major in Telecommunications and Security. Despite I’m an engineer by heart, I also hold a variety of non-technical certifications and degrees including MBA, PMP, ITIL and Agile.

I’m intrigued by data and research, and have a special interest in physics and rock music.
