What People Are Saying


open quotation

I never realized how compelling cyber-security is.

It's like solving a complex puzzle - it's tough to walk away from, and when you do, you find yourself running though scenarios in your head! I thought I would need to be more of a "techy" than I am, but that just isn't the case, it's my curiosity and interest in figuring things out that make me good at this. I can do this and never be bored!

Sam, Student
