As a Dean here at DeVry University, I can honestly say that our students are the number one reason why I do what I do. Seeing a student succeed in their education and pursue their career goals is the ultimate reward for an educator – especially when you see how much commitment and perseverance they put into achieving their dreams.
Neana Del Rio is a student that embodies all the essential characteristics of a cyber security professional – despite not actually starting her career in the field. In fact, she spent the first 15 years of her career working in criminal justice, most recently as a Probation Officer with Cobb County State Court in Georgia. Today, she is a Cyber Security Analyst with Deloitte. That’s quite the career shift.
Neana is a graduate of our Master’s Degree in Information Systems Management program here at DeVry, with a specialization in Information Security. I took some time recently to connect with her and learn more about her experience as well as her process in deciding to pursue a cyber security career. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights of Neana’s journey and how she defined her new path.
