Safety Detectives: What drew you to cybersecurity?

Armond Caglar: I took a somewhat circuitous path to information security. My interests growing up were primarily centered around journalism and foreign affairs and not, say, computer science or software development. As a first-generation Armenian-American, I think I’ve always carried with me a global perspective about things, probably the result of being exposed to a second language at home and trips to Istanbul we would take every summer to visit relatives.

Later, I worked in federal service specializing in regional affairs around the world.
