This is First Watch Spotlight, from SafeGuard Cyber, where we focus on the up and coming generation of cybersecurity professionals. Some Spotlight guests 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 Exton Howard, Security Analyst / Penetration Tester at Dara Security.
Exton went from a career directing TV to a new career in cybersecurity. I wanted to dig into how he made the decision and managed the transition to his new career. We talk about his approach to transferable skills, which education resources he took, and his newfound passion for information security.
