Cybersecurity webinar will give look into one of the most in-demand modern careers
For the sixth year in a row, the Pell Center and Salve Regina are supporting the annual Department of Homeland Security’s campaign as a National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champion Organization, participating in a growing global effort, to promote online safety awareness with the theme: “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.”
Now in its 17th year, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across the U.S., ensuring that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.
In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Salve Regina will present the virtual panel discussion “Careers in Cybersecurity” on Oct. 21 at 5:00 p.m. The webinar will be of interest to those at all career stages — from undergraduates preparing to enter the job market to experienced cybersecurity professionals to those interested in pursuing a master’s degree in cybersecurity. To register for the event, please visit Eventbrite.
The event will feature a panel discussion with Salve Regina alumni and faculty. These include Darwin Salazar, senior product security analyst at Johnson & Johnson; Giuliana Sandonato, senior software engineer at Raytheon Missiles & Defense; Barrett Wann, professor of administration of justice, homeland security, and cybersecurity and intelligence at Salve Regina and defense intelligence agency account executive at CACI International Inc.; and Francesca Spidalieri, senior fellow for cyber leadership at the Pell Center, where she leads the Rhode Island Corporate Cybersecurity Initiative.
This seminar will cover cybersecurity careers with discussion on the widening gap between the demand of cybersecurity professionals and the supply of a skilled workforce. Each panelist will share their unique experience in the field and personal career journeys, offering insight into what Salve Regina can offer to students who wish to enter one of the most in-demand, profitable and critical fields in the modern age.
Faculty members from the undergraduate administration of justice department and cybersecurity graduate program will also participate and answer questions on courses and extracurricular activities available at Salve Regina.
There is no cost to attend and panelists will answer questions at the end of the presentation. To register for the event, please visit the panel’s Eventbrite.
