Institute of Coding - Breaking into Cyber Security

Speaker: Rohan Durve, Lead Security Consultant @Context

Date: 28-01-2020
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: ELA 102a

There will be an exciting Cybersecurity talk and demo by Rohan Durve, who was a CIS graduate of Northumbria University and did his project under Dr Graham Sexton, the previous HoD.

Rohan will speak on cyber security and opportunities in the field. Although he primarily works in adversary simulation (red-teaming) and penetration testing, other company departments hire from forensic, incidentresponse, business development, international politics and management backgrounds. His company hires over two dozen technical and non-technical interns, placement year candidates and graduate-level roles every year. As a lead consultant, he often finds himselfin a hiring positioning for his department and therefore could offer insight into what the technical requirements for strong applicants are.
