Deika is a strategic thinker and communicator and team leader. As a thought leader, she worked closely with the business leaders within our organization and employees. Deika gave tech talks and instituted department fireside chats to introduce and further security and compliance principles and best practices company-wide. She is motivating, easy to work with and a great advocate and champion for security. She cares about this domain deeply and it comes through.

I have rarely observed someone with such knowledge and leadership when it comes to third party audit and vendor reviews. Deika is astute in all vendor review and audit compliance matters. I wholeheartedly have enjoyed working and collaborating with Deika and would highly recommended her to any organization focused on improving their security and compliance programs.
