Because many “older” information security/cybersecurity professionals started in an information technology (IT) role first, they understand IT and the role it plays in their organization. Today, it is common to go straight into the security field without working in IT first, but it is still important for the modern security professional and the modern IT professional to have a good understanding of each other’s mindsets and priorities.  Join Dr. Gerald Auger and Michael Farnum as they talk about the differences and parallels between IT and info/cyber security. There will also be some bonus discussion for those who are interested in moving from IT to cyber and what that looks like in today’s world.
