Courtney H. Jackson — CEO of Paragon Cyber Solutions, family-night game champion, and calculated-risk taker
No Password Required Podcast Episode 40 — Courtney H. Jackson
Courtney H. Jackson is the CEO of Paragon Cyber Solutions, a Tampa-based cybersecurity solutions provider. If Courtney’s name sounds familiar, that may be because she was awarded the Global 2022 Cybersecurity Woman Entrepreneur of the Year! In addition, Courtney is a 2023 Business Woman of the Year Honoree and a veteran of the U.S. Navy, where she was introduced to the world of cyber and IT. In this episode of No Password Required, Courtney joins Carlton Fields P.A. Jack Clabby and KnowBe4’s Kayley Melton to talk about her path to becoming a CEO, the resources that she wished she’d had when starting her career in this industry, how she uses a Cybersecurity Apprenticeship program approved by the Department of Education and Department of Veterans Affairs and SkillBridge to fill her growing team with talent, and the “one” family-night game that brings out her family’s competitive spirit.
Jack and Kayley also talk about the unlikely duo behind the 2016 Bitfinex hack – one of whom is most known by her persona as the aspiring rapper “Razzlekhan.”
