Terry Culver fell into a security management career. She had been working for several years for the U.S. Department of Defense in another field of work. About three years after being transferred out of Washington, D.C., she was recruited by a Fortune 500 defense contractor in the Atlanta area to run its contract security program. She became the facility security officer and assumed the role of security manager when her mentor retired.
While there, management of the overall corporate security program was something Culver grew into rapidly.
“The CPP means you’re a security expert, whether it’s management, education, training, physical security, counterintelligence, or counterterrorism, you’ve got some expertise in the entire field. You become the go-to person for most security issues.”
