My cybersecurity journey: 20 years of nonstop learning
When I graduated with a bachelor’s in computer engineering, the internet was still relatively young. It was 1999, and email was this new, edgy technology. I remember my college professor giving an assignment to send an attachment via email – a daunting task as we used the text-based Pine email system at the time.
