No Password Required: A Child of the 1980s With a Knack for Storytelling, Comedic Timing, and Building an Elite Cybersecurity Team

Asim Fareeduddin is the Vice President of IT Security & Regulatory Controls Assurance at the RELX Group. In addition to his impressive professional resume, Asim is a guy who is never afraid to take a chance – from stand-up comedy to teaching masters-level students at Georgia State University; he’s done it all. In this episode, Asim joins the No Password Required team to talk about how he went from an accountant to Vice President of a global company, how becoming a dad has changed him, and his most cherished accomplishment – high-fiving Busta Rhymes at the 2006 B.E.T. Awards. Ernie and Jack talk about why fist bumps have officially surpassed handshakes as the coolest greeting. More importantly, they discuss cyber workforce development and why right now may be the best time for new workers to join the industry.
