We are Risk Based Security

I went to RVASec to scope out cybersecurity companies and saw a few presentations (including the RBS one) to see my career options. I always knew that cybersecurity would be my career. Ever since I was a kid, I would be taking things apart just to understand how they work and I would make tons of weird modifications to them.
This kind of evolved into my fascination with cybersecurity, where at previous jobs I would start looking behind-the-scenes as to what vulnerabilities were affecting them. It is amazing just how easy it is for hackers to attack programs and companies. I got to see what the industry standard was and how they approached vulnerabilities and I was surprised to just how much was missing.
In my mind, that was what made Risk Based Security® stand out to me. Out of the other products out there, RBS had a better product and database. Everything we do here at RBS seems to be better than what is standard in the industry.
As soon as I saw the office and the people in it, I knew I wanted to work here. I know for a fact that this is the place to be if you want to be in cybersecurity. I could just feel the vibe of the place and I felt that it was relaxing and healthy.
At previous jobs there were always issues with “office politics” and management. I never felt that they had invested in me or mentored me to be better within my role.
But that isn’t the case now. The salary is competitive and I enjoy proving that I have earned it. The work I am doing here isn’t as intimidating as I first thought and I’m still constantly learning.
I really enjoy the flexibility at RBS, if I don’t feel well in the morning I can just come in a little bit later and the option of working from home time-to-time is also a huge plus.
I definitely feel like RBS is going to help me get to the next step in my cybersecurity career path. There is so much I want to learn and I am constantly adapting here at RBS.
