A Day in the Life of...


Cybersecurity focuses on protecting organizations, large and small, from digital attacks by keeping information and networks safe. Experts have the ability to detect vulnerabilities and make recommendations that ultimately mitigate risks and develop best practices for maintaining their organization's security.

With organizations moving their security to the cloud, an increase in sophisticated cyber attacks, and the recent expansion of remote work, the need for cybersecurity professionals is also growing.

Join us on Wednesday, May 26th as we talk with cyber professionals across different functions within the cybersecurity space. Each individual brings a unique perspective and insight into what their daily lives entail.
