eSentire’s Tia Hopkins Wins Outstanding Educator Leadership Award from SC Media

WATERLOO and SEATTLE – September 23, 2019 – eSentire, Inc., a global leader in Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced that Tia Hopkins, Vice President, Global Sales Engineering at eSentire, has been named a winner in the third annual SC Media Reboot Leadership Awards, earning the distinction in the Outstanding Educator category.

A total of 50 honorees were revealed as part of a special editorial section published on www.scmagazine.com on Monday, September 23, 2019.

The Reboot Leadership Awards are an adjunct to SC Media’s annual Reboot coverage that takes place each December when SC Media recognizes the best and brightest cybersecurity luminaries and organizations. The Reboot Leadership Awards are offered similar accolades. The winners are honored with a special section on SC Media’s website and in their December Reboot edition.

David L. Schwed, J.D., Director of the MS in Cybersecurity program at Yeshiva University said: “When I joined the Katz School of Science and Health as the Director of the Cybersecurity Program, Tia was the first person I thought of bringing on board to help instill in our students the knowledge and confidence to make a contribution to our field. To be an effective cybersecurity professional, you must be passionate, motivated, pragmatic, and above all, intelligent. Adversaries are constantly researching new and innovative ways to accomplish their nefarious objectives. We must always be vigilant and never stop learning. Tia encompasses all these traits. She is the perfect combination of security knowledge and has proven herself to be an outstanding addition to our faculty.”

I will also keep advocating for greater inclusion and diversity within the cybersecurity field.”
