Frank Downs

Director of Cybersecurity Practices, ISACA

Frank Downs is director of cybersecurity practices at ISACA, where he shares the good news about ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) platform. Downs, an 11-year cybersecurity specialist, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Maryland, after which he promptly joined the US Department of Defense as a subject matter expert, working with computer networks on a daily basis. Realizing that English and cybersecurity were two very different concepts, Downs proceeded to obtain a master’s degree in cybersecurity from UMBC, after a pit stop at Johns Hopkins to obtain a master’s degree in Government. Eventually, he decided to ease the learning process for individuals transitioning from non-technical backgrounds into cybersecurity by becoming a full-time Intelligence and Operations Consultant for multiple federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
