Paul Fisher: How and why did you get into information security as a career?
Judie Ayoola: I accidentally fell into security. I originally trained to be a librarian and, while I loved the job, I found myself increasingly reading the computer books while I was classifying them. I was intrigued about the workings of computers and while I was pursuing my degree in librarianship, one of the modules I did was on the digital storage of information and digital asset management, which I enjoyed. However this was nothing compared to my awakened interest in computer networking and I thought: ‘Wow this is more interesting than what I was doing’, and toyed with the idea of pursuing a Masters in IT.
