To tie ourselves to one domain, becoming the most technical person in the room to be successful, to have ‘made it.’ However, there are endless interesting areas of security; penetration testing, threat hunting, product security, malware reverse engineering - attack, defend, research, even develop products!

I’ve spent most of my decade in security jumping around to different roles. From malware reverse engineer to cloud security engineer, engineering manager and now head of a new detection and response program. I want to present an argument for the benefits of breadth in your security career, through reviewing what I’ve learned about the most useful skill sets for mobility. I hope to leave you with a sense of freedom to try different types of domains - both technical and organizational, and end up building an impressive career.
