10 Second Bio: John Donovan of ITS

John Donovan insertName: John Donovan

Title: Infosec Consultant

Department/Unit: Information Technology Services/Cyber Risk Coordinator Center

Location: Oakland

When I started working at UCOP: Jan. 1, 2016

What I do for OP in five words or less: Research and craft cyber-security guidance

The best part about working for OP: High XII, BART access, downtown architecture contrasts of old and new, interesting intranet, and the feeling that I’m supporting world-class research intended to maximize people over profits.

Something you don’t know about me: I’m an apiarist.

One weird fact about the town I grew up in: Walnut Creek. Not necessarily weird but an interesting progression from walnut orchards, giving way to subdivisions, then the proliferation of banks and realtors, finally with the emergence of a bustling downtown shopping district.

If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would be: I’ve decided the only professions that survive time, economies and politics are teaching and healing, so one (or both) of those.
