Rhonda Childress is the CTO of Security Services, an IBM Fellow, and Master Inventor with over 100 granted patents. She is currently responsible for the technical strategy, development, and delivery of professional security services to IBM clients worldwide.

Ms. Childress's talents are not just limited to technology: one of her hand-made quilts was auctioned and raised $1400 for charity - and her homemade Texas competition chili is guaranteed to place in the top three at just about any cookoff. When she is not obsessing over the cyber security well-being of her clients or pitting her penetration-testing skills against application developers, she can be found hacking into robots or wearing clothing that reacts to tweets - just two of the many STEM-related activities Ms. Childress shares with future technologists everywhere.
