Panel | Parlaying Education and Experience into an Infosec Career - Forgotten Sec BSides NOVA 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Panel | Parlaying Education and Experience into an Infosec Career
Forgotten Sec
BSides NOVA 2017

A group of former students, current students, educators and seasoned infosec professionals discuss how to bridge the educational gaps whether starting out in infosec or pivoting into a new infosec specialization. We will touch on resources that current students can leverage, the transition into working in infosec, and ways that the infosec industry can help foster new practitioners. Additionally, we will shortly explain the paths we took and how we dealt with the obstacles we faced. We then evaluate these problems to find room for improvement in the industry and give our perspective on what either side could do to make the transition more seamless.

Forgotten serves as President of Unallocated Space, Director of BSidesCharm, Lead for TOOOL Maryland, Head of Security for BSidesDC and a litany of other things. Forgotten is dedicated to learning and improvement and has focuses in Network Security Monitoring, Education/Training, Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Capture-the-Flag Challenges (CTFs).
