Leeza Garber L’11 publishes book on cybersecurity hiring best practices

January 20, 2022

Garber’s book is co-authored by Scott Olson, former FBI agent, and includes interviews with Fortune 500 CSOs and CISOs and high-ranking government officials, among others.

Leeza Garber L’11 recently authored Can. Trust. Will.: Hiring for the Human Element in the New Age of Cybersecurity, which tackles the ever-increasing problem of cyberthreats, with a focus on how employers can find and hire the right people to handle them to protect their environments.

Along with co-author and former FBI agent and HR expert Scott Olson, Garber details how successful cybersecurity ecosystems are best built and sustained, with expert analysis from high-level government officials, Fortune 500 CSOs and CISOs, risk managers, and even a few techies. The book, published by Business Expert Press, is geared toward the C-Suite, HR professionals, and talent acquisition to help them build unbeatable cybersecurity teams through advanced hiring processes and focused on-boarding programs. With Olson, Garber started Can. Trust. Will., LLC, a consulting firm specializing in best hiring practices with a focus on cybersecurity.

Garber’s interest in privacy issues was shaped by her experiences at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School, namely coursework with Anita Allen, Henry R. Silverman Professor of Law and Professor of Philosophy.

“I adored my class with Anita Allen,” said Garber. “She calls herself ‘grandmother privacy’ and rightfully so! Her work in the field is dynamic.”

Garber is a cybersecurity and privacy lawyer and consultant as well as a lecturer at the Wharton School, where she teaches “Internet Law, Privacy, and Cybersecurity.” In 2020 and 2021, she was honored with the Wharton Teaching Excellence Award. As an adjunct law professor at Drexel University’s Kline School of Law, Garber teaches about information privacy.

She is a keynote speaker and guest expert on major televised media outlets including Fox News, Fox Business, and The National Desk, analyzing issues at the intersection of law, technology, and information privacy, including big data, social media, data breaches, hackers, and privacy legislation.

Garber also holds a Certificate in Business & Public Policy from Wharton.
