Security Career Should Grow
Hi Kelly Sheridan,

Cyber Security career is really awesome platform to work with, usually importance is not given to security subjects specially in computers career, I personally suffered a lot of trouble during my 1st business project i.e  someone hacked it. After a big pay got it back. There are a lot of solutions available which can prevent hacking and provide solutions, even you can start career in security, so concern persons must take a serious Attention in proper learning of security subjects. So that no one can harm your business. Yes kelly i wish to work in cyber-securities but due to other work load i can't do it my self.

Building a network
There are professional organizations for information security. ISC2 chapters are geared towards CISSP professionals but open to all. I belong to Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and we not only have networking opportunities but conferences, classes and seminars to get, and keep certifications.
