Fareedah, a lifelong learner, was always interested in technology and grew up reading her father’s Cisco books.
I’m often asked how do I get into Information Security (aka Cybersecurity). However, the answer is really not the same for everyone. First of all there are so many positions and niches in the field, so we kind of need to start there. Second, it helps to know more about the person, their strengths, weaknesses, and interests.
I figured the BEST way for someone to learn about the field and how to get in is from someone else’s experience. This would not only help educate them on getting in, but also add some inspiration that they are not alone and that others have crossed this path before. Hearing the hardships that others went through as well will motivate them to continue on when facing challenges.
