ABOUT THIS EPISODE: In this episode, I sit down with Chelsea Pierre, is a speaker, cybersecurity professional, and certification instructor. She talks about how to get into cybersecurity and the different adversities minorities and women face in their journey. One of the many great stories Chelsea spoke on was one where she was able to talk to another minority woman struggling to find her way into the industry. Chelsea was able to connect with her and have a positive impact on her career. We need more crusaders like her ready to be the light when security hopefuls struggle to find their way.
