This is First Watch Spotlight, where we put the focus on the up and coming generation of cybersecurity professionals. Some are right out of school, and some are entering from a different career path altogether. Our goal is to show there’s no singular path into the industry, and hopefully highlight some ways more people can enter the field.
Today’s guest is Laura Lopez, Senior Information Security Associate at Tevora.
Laura talks to us about her journey, and how she transitioned from from video editing reality TV in LA to a new career in cybersecurity. I wanted to dig in and get to the details on how she managed that transition.
