I came across a very informative blog post from NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology. It is written by a former NIST intern and current graduate student and it answers the following questions in an informative way:
What is cybersecurity?
Is cybersecurity more than just protecting my personal devices?
Is cybersecurity for me?
Are there resources to help me pursue a career in cybersecurity?
The post is titled Owning Your Role in Cybersecurity. I encourage you to read it, especially if you are considering pursuing a career in cybersecurity. There are several links to career resources and we have a serious shortage in this area.
If you are the parent of a middle school or high school student, share these resources with them as they consider their career path opportunities.
This is one of the better posts I have read. Thanks to NIST for publishing it!
