I got into the Cybersecurity field through very unorthodox means – in 2009 I found a scholarship on Craigslist (back in its heyday) and applied to the CyberCorps Scholarship for Service through OPM. The program had a track called the “Monarch Program” to transform people with non-STEM degrees into future cybersecurity practitioners and leaders in an attempt to address the growing shortage in the cybersecurity workforce pipeline in return for two years of Federal Government service in that field.

After I graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School with my Master’s in Computer Science - Information Assurance I went to work for the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) for almost 10 years, growing from entry level cybersecurity roles to a director-level position in the command. I knew CISSP was the gold standard for cybersecurity certifications, so I studied hard and took the exam at my first opportunity (and passed!). I don’t carry a lot of certs, and my CISSP cert has opened a lot of doors. Almost two years ago I left Government service to join Deloitte for a cybersecurity role that seemed made for me, and one of the things that made me stand out was my CISSP cert. Now I have a successful career and a bright future, and when others ask what cert they should strive for in their cybersecurity career I always recommend the ISC2 certs as the gold standard
