Willow Young (she/hers)

Engineering Manager

Global Security Sales

For almost 30 years, I've done a little bit of everything there is to do in Cybersecurity, whether it's consulting, hacking, teaching, designing practical security solutions or selling the 'technical' side of security. I love working with large audiences and small groups to find those "Aha!" moments when understanding, innovation and collaboration all come together. When I'm not at Cisco, I'm spending time with my family, looking for another hobby to try out, or watching too many movies.
