Keys To Success

Many various industries, such as health care, finance, retail, and more, are now turning to individuals with experience in Network Security to protect their valuable information from breaches.

While many of the same personality traits that lead to success in the Computer Science field, like passion, perseverance, and attention-to-detail, are essential for a role in the Network Security industry, they aren’t the only traits you’ll need.

Often, the most important trait is to be inquisitive. You will be faced with many challenges in a security role and should have the desire and drive to find solutions for your future clients. Additionally, an analytical mind is an asset when dealing with multiple scenarios, unexplained breaches, and the mysteries that come in this field.

Adam Hatcher

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.

I really enjoy that most classes are not straight reading from a book, listening to PowerPoint presentations, taking a test and then moving to the next chapter. The instructors take the time to have class discussions and incorporate real world examples. To me, this makes the material more interesting and puts what I am learning into a better perspective.

I am currently in the Bachelor’s of Business Administration program with a Concentration in Accounting. I felt that given my personal interests, strengths, and skills, that a career in accounting would be the right choice. Also, I wanted to choose something that had the potential to allow work/life balance in the future as both are important to me.
