Senior Program Manager, Information Security, Discovery Communications
A crusader against cybercrime, Kayton is working to increase employee awareness of dangers like phishing schemes through Discovery’s Global Information Security Awareness Campaign. It’s working with the company reporting a drop in employees falling for such schemes. She’s also assisted in developing and messaging senior executive level data, content and messaging for C-Suite execs and Discovery’s board. Her many roles include financial forecasting, budget planning, administration, and reporting project costs. Her key to success? “Writing everything down,” says Kayton.
What product or service can you not live without?
What sort of culture is important to you in the workplace?
Openness is very important to me. I think that allows for people to trust each other and be more productive when collaborating. For personal growth, openness with your supervisor is important to know what you are doing well and where there are areas for improvement.
What is the one habit that makes you most successful?
Writing everything down. That way I can make sure I don’t miss following up on anything or forget to complete any tasks. Especially in an environment where things move quickly and there is so much to do, making sure that everything on my plate is written down somewhere helps me to stay organized and on top of things.
