Informative NIST Blog Post

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:

  1. What is cybersecurity?

  2. Is cybersecurity more than just protecting my personal devices?

  3. Is cybersecurity for me?

  4. 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!
