Portland OWASP - Breaching the Cyber Security Job Industry with Ryan Krause
Simple 120 SE Clay St Floor 2, Portland, OR 97214

Breaching the Cyber Security Job Industry

Despite the growing popularity of the cyber security industry, many job hunters still find it challenging to break into the field. With numerous entry-level cyber security jobs requiring one, two, or sometimes even three years of security-related experience, how are inexperienced applicants supposed to get their foot in the door?

This talk will discuss some of the challenges that potential employees face while looking for careers in the cyber security industry. It will explore potential career paths for new high school and college graduates, mid-career employees with a technical background, as well as mid-career employees with no technical background. The discussion will also focus on ways to help position yourself for success in the industry, touching on security internships, university diplomas, industry certificates, Portland-based security meetings, and self-study resources.

Ryan Krause is a penetration tester based in the Portland, Oregon area. He has worked in various areas of the security field for the past 11 years for companies such as HP, eEye Digital Security/BeyondTrust, and Comcast with a primary focus on application security and development. He is currently a consultant at NetSPI where he performs web and network penetration tests and assists clients with reducing their overall security exposure.
