In the ecosystem of cyber security conferences, there are many types ranging from industry to subject matter within a specific industry. In the cyber security world, two main types exist, vendor specific and vendor agnostic. Before recently, I only attended general security conferences to be exposed to a broader range of material. However, since my trip to the Carbon Black conference I wanted to discuss which are better to attend for new folks in the industry.
Today, I want to talk a little bit about the interview process. It's a fundamental part of getting a new job in cyber security. So the topic definitely deserves some level of devotion here. Before we get started, these suggestions are based on my experiences being interviewed and conducting interviews, therefore your experiences may vary. With that being said, I believe that if you can understand the different mechanics of the interview process, you will feel more comfortable and perform better. The two primary areas I am going to touch on are understanding the process and techniques to help you standout with your interviewers.
