I met Lux Fortuna in person for the first time in June of 2012, and am now married to as of July 10, 2013, the man of my dreams, and we had a baby boy on March 19th, 2013. We're expecting a second son in late July 2014.
That's the job I want. My focus in my major was computer forensics, so I learned about cyber security stuff and I even have my own forensic toolkit in my 8-gig flash drive. Plus, my laptop has basically been turned into a forensic workstation.
The company does information risk management, but the cyber analyst job will have me mainly analyzing cyber attacks and threats on social media. There will also be cross training so I'll be doing stuff focused on account management, product development, and customer success as well.
I even thought I would have been the youngest one there, but nope. People in my class come from different backgrounds of jobs and stuff (only one person has an IT job). There's someone who works at McDonalds (he graduated high school this year), someone who recently quit their warehouse job, and even someone who has a different IT certification.
Earlier this week, I applied to a cyber analyst position and the next morning, the recruiter e-mails me and wants to talk to me this week. Yay! That's something moreso with what I want to go into.
I also started my certification classes last night and lo and behold, I'm the only girl in the small class size of 8. I'm used to being the only black person in my classes (all that changed when I got to college) and I'm used to being in college classes in which I'm one of the few girls in the class, so this is completely new.
