The Cyber Security LifeJourney™ Premieres At RSA 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeJourney™, the new online career-simulation platform that lets students and jobseekers test-drive careers in cyber security, premiered yesterday at the RSA Conference. LifeJourney™ enables leading cyber security companies to become role models for millions of students and others interested in understanding careers across the industry. Using the LifeJourney™ platform, companies can showcase their star talent and transform their technologies into virtual experiences, "field trips," that let someone live a day in the life of an actual cyber security professional.  

As hackers, spies, and cyber criminals steal technology, money, and innovation from United States government and commercial networks, creating and nurturing the rising cyber generation is key to securing America's future. "Cyber security is one of the most important missions in the US today. Building the cyber generation will require educators, government agencies and companies to align their education and workforce development efforts in innovative new ways," remarked Robert Rodriguez, Chairman of SINET. "Providing information isn't enough. We need to give students, returning veterans, and other jobseekers a way to engage with our industry. And we as cyber security leaders have a central role to play: it's up to all of us to lead."

There are now a total of fifty cyber security LifeJourneys™ available, each representing a cyber security career. A company can choose to represent an entire career, or it can use its products and specialized expertise to create field trips that bring important facets of the industry to life. There are hundreds of possible cyber field trips a company can present, showcasing fields and topics like digital forensics, advanced persistent threats, mobile application security, cloud security, reverse engineering, critical infrastructure protection, and many others.  

Karl Gumtow, CEO of CyberPoint, commented, "Inspiring students to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is key to the future of the cyber security industry. With the US ranking 27th in the world in STEM graduations, it's more important than ever that we accelerate our efforts to find solutions to the education and workforce development challenges we face today."
