Introduction to Cybersecurity as a Career

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing technology sectors today. With 11 billion currently connected Internet devices and a forecast of 20 billion connected devices by the year 2022, there have never been more access points and vulnerabilities to our sensitive and valuable data than there is today. Because of this, there is an ongoing cybersecurity workforce gap making it increasingly difficult for organizations to find cybersecurity analysts, application security experts, and security leaders at the executive level. Participants will learn what it takes to enter the cybersecurity workforce and how to have a successful career in cybersecurity.


New York Tech's ETIC Remote Engagement Sessions in Technology (iNTEREST) is an online lecture series designed to introduce students to proprietary technologies in use in industry today and expose them to related career opportunities and pathways. Students are provided with a background summary, a demonstration of the technology, instruction on how it can be acquired, and tips on how to quickly gain hands-on experience.

This workshop part of the iNTEREST Program hosted by the Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation Center (ETIC).
