Hubzone? What does this mean?
What does the future of cyber look like
How do you stay ahead on the latest cyber or what’s new cyber? What are those resources?
If you are interested in Cyber, how do you get involved and what are some of the certifications?
We're told this is a hard skill set to fill and we have it so we're looking for teaming partners who have access to the government like we just don’t have yet being so young. We want to help more females get into this highly technical area. We offer free training and XP.
The difference in Cyber security backgrounds - It's unique in that it takes a strong background in Computer Science, Computing Engineering, and Electrical Engineering to do what we do.
We’re doing more work on the commercial side where some of the largest tech companies pay us to find the vulnerabilities in their systems before the bad guys do.
Are you based here? Where do you provide service?
We’re the only ones we know of who does this line of work for some of the biggest names in tech and our customer base is all out of Silicon Valley so we’re proud to bring this work to Huntsville and we want to see the Missile Defense Industry implement these same tactics to protect our weapon systems.
Let's talk hot sauce? What is the secret to success?
Thank you, Jarrod, and thank you for listening to today’s episode - “Cyber 101” on the Coffee & Hustle podcast.
