Cybersecurity and Being Human The K12 Engineering Education Podcast

    • Education

Cybersecurity needs more professionals working in the field, and guest Nicole Bushong from Houston shares why. She explains critical issues today in digital crime, cyberwarfare, hacking, public safety, and diversity of the tech workforce. She also explains key aspects of her own path toward this field, including navigating being a woman in the still male-majority field of cybersecurity, her work in a women’s tech organization at The University of Houston, and getting educated while having dyslexia.
