Security, Technology, and Community - Bio
Christina is an information security and technology professional with a background in cloud security technologies, enterprise security, and identity engineering. By day, she works as a Senior Technical Program Manager on the Azure identity engineering product team at Microsoft. Christina advocates and is passionate about empowering women and underrepresented folks to follow careers in security and technology while creating opportunities for others. She co-leads Women in Security and Privacy's (WISP) NYC chapter and supports others as an advisor and mentor.
In addition to her professional work, Christina has contributed to representation in tech at scale by co-founding the grassroots initiative for Women of Color in Technology. Under this initiative, Christina developed, strategized and creatively directed three stock photoshoots, sponsored by companies such as GitHub, Microsoft, Google, Digital Ocean, Trello & Buffer, to produce a collection of hi-res creative commons licensed photos. Today, these photos have been used by a variety of press, bloggers and technology, and business organizations. Best of all, the Women of Color in Tech Stock Photos have now been viewed over 94 Million times, and are natively available in Wordpress, via Pexels, and can also be found on Flickr, Unsplash, and Pablo by Buffer- Yay!
You can find her on TWITTER chatting about Information Security, tech, pop-culture, current events, parenting (balance does not exist, ask me why?), education and sharing her small wins and hardships as a career woman, and as of 2019 a Graduate Student too. Christina is based in NYC.
