Profiles in Leadership: Rich Lindberg

JAMS CISO Launched Career in Cybersecurity When He 'Embraced Fun'
Rich Lindberg, CISO, JAMS

Rich Lindberg, CISO of JAMS, didn't set out to have a career in cybersecurity. Instead, he sought to make a living at what he enjoyed - programming. "I embraced fun," he says. Now he wants to help others do the same by growing the diversity of the industry workforce.
