I have worked in the cybersecurity space for about 14 years now. I found my way into cybersecurity from being a network engineer who needed to fill a technology gap on my then team – as a security subject matter expert.
I have been approached over the years by folks looking to begin a career in cybersecurity and/or gain a much deeper appreciation of this field. There are many reasons for these inquiries and it’s not necessarily for the paycheck alone. It’s a role that comes with an incredible amount of responsibility and brings immense value to any organization. I know that for myself, helping organizations better secure their business assets, and as such- their overall business, makes me feel a sense of gratitude and accomplishment for my investment in time and experience to learn this craft.
