Educating your business on the importance of cybersecurity

60 Days as a Cybersecurity Intern

Posted by Willie Zhang on Nov 23, 2020 12:04:11 PM

Your first day at a new internship can seem intimidating. For most of us, it’s our first look into the professional world. Although you learn important concepts in school, the experience you gain in a professional setting is much more valuable; especially in the cybersecurity industry. 60 days into my cybersecurity internship at ProCircular, the team has taught me much more than I’ve learned on my own. Before my time on ProCircular’s red team, I was only able to learn about cybersecurity concepts through internet resources, such as TryHackMe, and different books I found online. The opportunity to be an intern has enabled me to grow my skills and knowledge through hands-on experience with real companies around the country. Practicing vulnerability assessments and social engineering in an environment where it is legal is, by far, a great improvement compared to assessing my own home network. It’s exciting to see the different services that real companies have and the different ways those real companies try to secure them. It’s a much more engaging and volatile environment than what you get in online learning.
