Chief Information Security Officer Mark Herron was featured in recent edition of The Daily
In the early 1990s, the launch of Microsoft Windows and introduction of the World Wide Web set Mark Herron on an unexpected path that would take his career from that of a high school science teacher to a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). Though Herron graduated from John Carroll University with a master’s degree in biology, he had an interest in computers—not necessarily in how they operate, but rather in their ability to connect to other devices. The invention of the graphical user interface and the first-person computer games that soon followed left Herron especially intrigued with networking, so much so that he focused his career exclusively on the field.
