Meet Theresa M. Payton

I am Theresa Payton and I am a cyber security expert. I cut my cheque a little bit on cyber security when working in banking realizing that fraudsters and cyber crime were really taking over and we needed to protect our customers better. And from there, I got the distinct honor and wonderful opportunity to work at the white house for 2 and half years. And that's where I really became determined to protect people, protect businesses and protect organizations from what's going on out there on the internet. So that's what I do now. I dedicate my time to teaching businesses, how to expand their horizons, yet be safer online and teaching consumers and kids how to have a great time online, how to build a great digital persona, but at the same time be more aware of the threats so they can be safer. I am the proud wife of a former Naval officer who is now in banking and I have 3 wonderful kids and I spend lot of my weekends with these wonderful kids at their soccer games and when I have sort of downtime by myself, I love to go running and If I can't go running because the weather is bad, I love to do kickboxing. So that's just a little bit about me.
