Success in Cybersecurity Panel

Devhub

The Success in Cybersecurity Panel focuses on careers in cybersecurity, including what the skillset looks like for entry level security professionals and how you upskill yourself after breaking into the field. We also will be touching on the kinds of jobs that are available, and what the jargon and expectations actually mean for someone wanting to be part of an increasingly important field of technology. This panel, moderated by Don Burks from Lighthouse Labs, will be focusing on the skills, the professional development, and the overall role of a cybersecurity professional. We will be having three industry professionals on the panel, all of whom will be able to speak to what it takes to be successful in this field, both at the entry level and beyond. Come and hear from pros in the realm of security, have some pizza and get all of your questions about working in cybersecurity answered. Can't make it to the event?
