Cindy McKendall


I’m a Cybersecurity Training Specialist at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I work in the Technology Services department as part of the Cybersecurity Training and Awareness team. I spent the early part of my career in software quality assurance and project management before transitioning to training and instructional design. I’ve been in the training field for over 15 years, with the last three years in cybersecurity training specifically. I'm certified as a SANS Security Awareness Professional (SSAP).
