This episode I sit down with Michelle A. Tucker, VP Cybersecurity - Identity Governance for Huntington Bank. We talk about the hilarious story of how we met, the challenges of managing an identity governance program, and her take on diversity and inclusion within the tech field. Meet Michelle: Michelle A. Tucker has worked in the Information Security and Risk Management field for over 20 years. Her ultimate goal is to create an environment where managing risk and providing the best customer service to her clients in meeting their security needs is a major focus. Her motto is: "Mitigating risk must be what we all strive for - this should be done whether it is to protect the company we work for or the clients we engage with." Throughout her career, Michelle has been a key liaison between her internal clients within her organization and also as a front-facing contact to her line of business partners (internal to the firm or vendors). Michelle has worked in numerous capacities over the years working for major companies in Central Ohio. She has served as an IAM and Technology Manager, Technical Operations Lead, Information Security and Business Analyst, Technical Writer, Process Analyst/Coach, and Trainer to name a few. With her diverse background based on her years spent working in Information Technology, Michelle has developed a keen interest in "getting to know" her environment. She is a dedicated and driven individual who seeks to learn about each assignment or role she embarks on so that she can be the best as an individual and share her knowledge with those around her. Whether it is teaching the teams that she has managed over the years or training new associates and clients, Michelle's wealth of knowledge helps to foster growth wherever she lands. Michelle is a leader who believes in the strength and power of her team and is dedicated to helping foster growth within those who she is blessed to call “team.” She is also a mentor to colleagues within her organization and community. Her outreach stretches internally and. Externally as well. She holds a seat on two Boards, serves as Chairperson on various committees, and is dedicated to her religious community in many capacities as well. One of her greatest roles in life is being a mother of two wonderful young ladies, Khye and Kiahna Tucker. Especially being a single mother, Michelle strives to provide a legacy of honesty, creativity, and growth for her daughters by being a living example for them.
