Few publications have stood the test of time. SC Media is one that, over the decades, has continued to improve, expand and align with industry needs. And its new editor-in-chief, Jill Aitoro, has plans to keep it moving forward.
In addition to her role at SC Media, Jill is also the editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance, where she supports content development for the Cybersecurity Collaborative network of chief information security officers. Jill is an experienced journalist and editor who has held leadership positions at numerous business, government and technology brands, leading several through digital transformations.
Prior to joining the CyberRisk Alliance, she worked at Sightline Media as editor of Defense News and executive editor of the Business-to-Government Group, guiding and developing the editorial strategy for federal outlets and the cyber brand Fifth Domain. She previously worked for Washington Business Journal and Nextgov, covering federal technology, contracting and policy.
She recently joined Look Left’s Davida Dinerman on the Look Left @ Marketing Podcast to talk about a wide range of cybersecurity topics.
