Cybersecurity is a challenging and rewarding career with many diverse roles and opportunities. Many graduating college students and transitioning colleagues ask me how they can start a career in cybersecurity. I believe anyone can find a passion for cybersecurity and a path that will lead them there.
My journey started with a traditional computer science degree and a typical software engineering career. It was shaped over time by the technical and business challenges I encountered. These technical topics will include endpoint security and access management. By leveraging my growing expertise in cybersecurity as part of my IT roles, I found myself naturally transitioning into a cybersecurity professional. This presentation will focus on some of those experiences and cybersecurity concepts to highlight how rewarding a career in cybersecurity is.
