Greetings All! I am currently majoring in Information Technology, with a concentration in Cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is an aspect of daily technology use that affects all of us. From banking to social media, our personal / private data is very important to us. Big money is made off of this personal data, from marketing and ads, to sales of our information on the "Dark" web. I am very passionate about proactive or offensive cybersecurity and plan to use the knowledge gained from this degree to make a better life for my family.
With offensive cybersecurity, I foresee myself working for either the government directly or through a contracting company, after completion of my degree. I plan to get deep in the weeds of cyber warfare, in an effort to protect our country against cyberthreats from other countries. The biggest threat to our nation, in my opinion, is not physical military attacks, but virtual attacks. These virtual attacks could potentially take out power grids and cause destruction to other aspects of our lives.
