TAI Cybersecurity Intern Series
The TAI Cybersecurity Intern Series is back for a second year, providing technology interns at member companies an opportunity to learn from and engage with CISO’s and cybersecurity experts. The content will be focused on cybersecurity, though all technology interns are welcome to attend.
The four-session series will highlight the variety of roles within information systems/cybersecurity and feature speakers at all career stages. Professionals ranging from Chief Information Security Officer to Cybersecurity intern will share emerging security practices and technology used to understand threats, prevent cyber-attacks, and defend their organizations. Interns will also participate by sharing what they are building and contributing during their internship. The final session will focus on recruiting tips and networking.
Interns are encouraged to attend at least three of the four live sessions to receive a certificate of completion for the series.
