My first 12 months in cyber security
Have you reached a point in your career where you were just over it? For me I got frustrated with creating reports and then having them changed from amber to green so the Board would not freak out, writing documents that were approved but then filed away.

Around this time I had a colleague who was a Cyber Security champion.
Learn how you can help someone make a career jump and land softly. And it doesn’t take a lot of effort.
