RSA Exhibitors Work Together to Inspire the Nation's Youth to Pursue Careers in Cybersecurity

LifeJourney Converts Cybersecurity Technology Products Into Teaching Tools for the Classroom

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2014) -  At RSA 2014, exhibitors will not only be showcasing their leading Cybersecurity products, but they will also be showcasing their expert LifeJourney Mentors. Within LifeJourney, students across the nation are able to experience "a day in the life" of these top cybersecurity professionals.

Companies start by selecting one of their leaders to become a LifeJourney Mentor for a specific cyber career. Using LifeJourney, a new technology that transforms a company's product into a teaching tool for the nation's classroom, the LifeJourney Mentor is able to mentor many thousands of students, thus inspiring and guiding them along educational pathways leading to that career. LifeJourney enables a student to experience future Cybersecurity careers in an interactive way.

There are fifty scheduled Cybersecurity LifeJourneys for 2014 that cover careers in the 20 Security Controls including cyber law and cyber banking. Examples include a Cyber Risk Manager from CyberPoint who determines the potential loss of a cyber attack, a Cyber Product Manager from SafeNet who develops new technologies to secure DropBox, a Mobile App Vulnerability Developer from Symantec who identifies a compromised application in an online store, a Digital Forensic Analyst from Lockheed Martin who uncovers the attack path of a hacker, a Global Threat Manager from Trustwave who helps identify a global cyber risk, a SCIF Architect from COPT who designs and builds a secure communications facility in National Business Park, or an Insider Threat Analyst from Hexis who uncovers a rogue employee.

"The recent CyberMaryland Jobs Report showed that there are over 340,000 open and unfulfilled Cybersecurity job openings in the U.S. alone. We have more than 40 million students in the nation that are currently in middle school, high school and college. These students represent a new generation, the Cyber Generation, and inspiring these students to pursue careers in Cybersecurity is one of biggest challenges facing our nation and the world. RSA 2014 highlights the dedication of our corporate leaders toward the mission of educating our youth by directly supporting teachers and schools as they prepare the future STEM workforce," remarked Rick Geritz, CEO of LifeJourney.

Intel's Vice President, Chief Security and Privacy Officer Malcolm Harkins will be on hand at this year's RSA for the launch of the CISO LifeJourney and states "There is not a more important mission than preparing our youth for their future. I am honored to lead the CISO LifeJourney to inspire the nation around STEM and Cybersecurity."
