The 'What Is' Job Series

Jul 17, 2019

The field of cybersecurity is an intriguing, yet still somewhat ambiguous, realm that's growing faster than its pool of professionals.  As such, this rapidly evolving industry is regularly spurring new areas of expertise, jobs and career paths.  

So let's say you're already a few years in the biz doing security intelligence, how do you 'hack' the industry to discover advancement opportunities? And then what about the requisite experiences versus education and, in some cases, certifications?

Think outside the box, but within your mainframe. Beyond your co-workers and Slacker channels, there are robust resources within the niche of cybersecurity available to you. Indeed, we're talking a community of peers, seasoned professionals and trailblazers.
