Moriarty became chief technology officer for the Center for Internet Security (CIS) in October 2020.

“I first interviewed for my current role at CIS just before everything shut down for COVID,” she said.  “The position was put on hold. That worked out to be a very good thing, as having a remote CTO was seen as possible when the hiring process restarted several months later.”

Because of COVID 19, Moriarty’s interview process was conducted entirely over Zoom.

“The onboarding utilized a few online resources,” she said. “CIS has adapted extremely well to remote work when just months prior to the pandemic, there were roles that many thought had to be in-person.”

As CTO for a little over six months now, Moriarty has yet to meet a colleague in person that she didn’t already know.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting one or more soon with an upcoming project,” she said.

Moriarty said that CIS’s mission is what draws in many who work there.
