We learn new things every day, in our conversations with coworkers or the tv shows we watch, life is full of accumulated learning experiences. However, we don’t often set aside time for the purpose of learning. In school, we were forced to read hundreds of pages from a text book you used as a doorstop and when we start a new job, it is necessary to begin with training. However, as the years go by and we settle into our positions, it can be hard to carve out the time to really explore the things we are passionate about. I often struggle with this and find myself registering for webcasts that interest me only to miss them because of an important meeting that came up 10 minutes before the start. I think many of you would agree with me in saying this happens way more than we'd care to admit.
So for all the learners out there looking to explore their passion in cyber security, I've compiled a list of five recent security webcasts that I found particularly interesting.
Unlike the book you used as a doorstop, these webinars are easily digestible and provide you with food for thought. My hope is that after watching one (or five), you might explore a little more. Let's start a trend of continual learning in the security space, let's start conversations with each other and begin sharing more webcasts and articles -- even podcasts! When we fill our time with learning, we have the opportunity to think of new ideas and help propel our organizations forward.
