Hey! My name is Travis Hearne and I am a Marine Corps Veteran, Cisco Cybersecurity Sales Specialist, Husband, and father of three crazy boys, and a leadership coach. Here at Cisco, I provide subject matter expertise to Service Providers and Global Enterprise partners regarding Cloud based security products and best practices. Before starting with Cisco in 2021, I was a cybersecurity leader with the Department of Defense (DOD), spending time in the intelligence community, as an active Marine, and as an Air Force Civilian. My doctoral work focused on preparing DOD leadership for next-generation cyber-warfare, where I conducted in-depth research on leadership theory, cybersecurity threat and advancements, and organizational change theory to create strategies and recommendations to better help our DOD leadership fight against malicious cyber-actors.
