Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like risk management frameworks and developing software and hardware solutions on a variety of technological platforms. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like working with cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure.
