Hickton, a two-time Wash100 Award recipient, tackled Jacobs’ growth strategy and related senior leadership appointments as well as efforts to accelerate the expansion of its cybersecurity capabilities. She also discussed her collaboration with Jacobs’ customers in light of the changes brought about by telework, and the most significant challenges the company is addressing to deliver innovative solutions to clients.
“An area that we are really focused on is threat intelligence within our Cyber & Intelligence business unit. We work very closely with the Intelligence and Department of Defense communities. We are in a very strong position to address some of the market needs of today. Cyber-attacks have been in the headlines recently with SolarWinds and the Colonial Pipeline. Those attacks have brought increased emphasis on cyber issues in the current administration.
