Intro to Blue Team: Let's Build a Castle

Delving into the life of our cyber guardians, the Blue Team: who all works defense, what do they even do, why it's a great career, and how you too can get started!

Presenter: A. Skye
With an inability to tolerate boredom and background in hunting social engineers, she moved from engineering and corporate training to work in customer facing & traditional blue team environments. As a generalist by nature, the Sisyphean nature of the industry appeals to her greatly. She is an advocate for demystifying and removing cost barriers for high-quality InfoSec training and knowledge.
