Joshua Copeland is a cybersecurity leader and engineer with 25 years of experience, with a focus on holistic cloud and on-prem security approaches and specific expertise in building and operating security stacks, SOC operations, and cybersecurity governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) processes. Key focus areas are building multi-faceted and diverse teams that translate the “bits and bytes” into “business capabilities and requirements.”

In my previous positions, I managed cybersecurity teams from 1 to 100+, oversaw physical, personnel, and cyber security programs, as well as traditional operational IT functions. In these roles, I directed the organizational-level security and long-term compliance processes.

Since 2021, I have been the purveyor of #unpopularopinions as the “Unpopular Opinion Guy” SM or “UOG” on LinkedIn, covering topics like hiring, mentoring, and cybersecurity.

Previous held TS/SCI Clearance, Public Trust, and CJIS.
