Mother, Wife, Disabled Veteran, Speaker, Philanthropist, and Cyber and Information Security Professional
Aloha, from the great state of Hawai’i. My name is Lee Signore and I am an information and cyber security professional with well over 15 years of experience. Throughout my tenure I’ve served in a number of key positions in IT ranging from Network Manager, System Administrator, Help Desk, Information Security Officer, and Information Security Engineer.
I was raised in Columbia, SC and I am the third out of five children. When I was seventeen years old, I joined the Army and served for 8 years honorably as a 25B, Information System Analyst (just a fancy title for a System Administrator). It was during this time in the Army that I met my wonderful and handsome (as he claims) husband. We’ve been happily married since 2009 and since then have three beautiful children together. My youngest child was recently born January of 2018. We also have a standard poodle whom my eldest son conveniently name Pluto, after Mickey Mouse’s dog. My “wonderful and handsome” husband still serves in the Army and we recently completed a permanent change of station (PCS) move to Hawai’i in April 2018.
Some of my favorite hobbies include writing (love writing poetry), photography, cycling, and yoga. I love writing so much that in March of 2018, I started this an online blog.
I’ve earned three degrees and several IT certifications. I obtained my associate degree from ITT technical college in Information System Administration, a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland University College in Cybersecurity with a minor in computing and continued on to obtain my master’s degree in Cybersecurity. In addition to the degrees, I currently hold the following IT certifications: CompTIA Advance Certified Practitioner (CASP), Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), ITIL V3, Security+, Network, Linux. I have also taken courses project management, computer network defense, and computer forensics.
