Talking to PhD students about cyber securityPosted: March 18, 2016
I recently had the pleasure to help organise and host PhD students from Royal Holloway, University of London (RHUL), who spent a day at my company interacting with the team in order to gain industry insights.
This day-long event included presentations by the students, their lecturers, our partners and consultants.
During one of these presentations, I shared some of my own experiences as an information security consultant, in which I talked about my role and area of expertise. I also discussed current security challenges and provided some career advice.
Several round table discussions provided everybody with much needed food for thought. We covered topics like security monitoring, threat intelligence, information protection in digital health and the role of the C-suite.
We received positive responses from the professors – the students enjoyed the presentations and learned a lot from the interactions during the day.
