Learn about unconventional paths to cyber security from the vantage point of a cyber security focused attorney’s journey.

When you think of the best point guards in the history of the game, some of the names that immediately come to mind include Magic Johnson, Isaiah Thomas, Russell Westbrook, and me. Cybersecurity attorneys are the point guard for data breaches. They lead breach investigations, playing the role of director, leader, encourager, and sometimes the “bad guy,” telling people “No” when it is in the client’s best interest. This presentation will discuss the roles that cybersecurity attorneys play and my journey. Next, we will outline the non-cyber skills that we all possess and how they can help you build a career in cybersecurity. Then, finally, there will be a discussion of how mentors and sponsors can help you supercharge your career. As we go through the presentation, I’ll encourage everyone to be more like Momma Hendricks and stress why we need both a Jay-Z and a Beyoncé.
