As a security and privacy consultant, you work closely with companies’ executives, so you need to have a strong understanding of technology, as well as good interpersonal and communication skills. These areas of expertise are critical to success across all of our solution offerings. Our team was brought into an organization to conduct a security assessment of one of their internal web applications. With our proven testing methodology, we identified and exploited a system vulnerability, allowing us to cut a check for $1 million—but of course we didn’t keep it!
Some students think that working at a smaller company can be limiting, but my experience says otherwise. Entry-level employees at a medium-sized company like Protiviti have more opportunity, more responsibility earlier in their careers, more variety in their work, and closer relationships with people. Your career develops quicker because of all these elements, and it can be a lot more fun along the way.
