    Joel Benge is an award-winning communicator with roots that span from the humanities to cybersecurity. Early dalliances with the entertainment industry (including Nickelodeon, video game development, and pioneering new media) gave way to hands-on industry experience with network security and cybersecurity risk management. He is the Risk Evangelist at Emergent Network Defense.

    Joel served seven years with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as the principal manager for enterprise cybersecurity communications. He has spoken internationally on and advocates for a data-driven “storytelling” approach to digital risk management.
