Episode 19: Inclusion and Community Engagement
In cybersecurity, teamwork is everything. Every part of the practice is about being part of a team, from playing your part in your organization to being part of the larger community and ecosystem. Cybersecurity conventions, such as the upcoming Blue Team Con, are a focal point for team building at every level, with knowledge sharing and training, networking, and volunteering. Many cybersecurity events are run by volunteers, seeking to learn more about cybersecurity and organizing, meet active and involved members of the community, and take part in building the culture.
This episode, onSecurity is joined by Phoenix Fier, security analyst for Funko and volunteer coordinator for the upcoming Blue Team Con. Phoenix discusses the importance of inclusion in cybersecurity events, the opportunities that volunteering at an event presents, and why getting involved is a critical step in your career.
