I’ve landed my first role in cybersecurity after preparing for a decent amount of time. I’m extremely excited!
I have previous experience in application systems where I’ve been reasonably successful.
I’m interested in advice that other cybersecurity professionals may have for someone new to the professional security world. Since the field is so broad, I expect generalized advice but hope that it may be applicable across security domains. Though, I’m primarily interested in how I can excel in the industry as this is where I plan on building my career.
What are some characteristics of a high performing cybersecurity professional? Are there any industry pitfalls to look out for? Are there milestones I should aim to achieve over the first 5 years, etc.?
Looking forward to the conversation!
