Why did you get into cybersecurity?
I was born with a keen ability to troubleshoot and break fix. I applied that ability in technical support in email security for 5 years. I really enjoyed working around unwanted inbound threats. Combine that with a computer science degree and a desire to do something good in this world...and cybersecurity becomes a natural career path.
