- One of top high points in Taylor's performance this year has shown in how she has learned to work with the journalists that cover the cybersecurity space. The company's share of voice in the media prior to Taylor starting the program was ~3%. Taylor grew it to ~35% in just 3 months of starting a new media relations program.
