Cyber Security network administrators install, configure, test, and support an organization's network infrastructure as well as plan and implement the organizations security policy. They install and configure security hardware and software products, perform ethical hacking and penetration testing techniques to determine and eliminate possible security risks, and investigate cyber-crime that is committed against the organization. Given the increasing amount of cyber-crime and the severity of the threats, Cyber Security specialists are in high demand.

My next teaching job brought me to Century College in the Twin Cities teaching primarily Cisco networking courses.
Now I am fortunate enough to have earned a position here at Central Lakes College teaching Computer Technology and working to develop a Mobile Applications Development program.
I am a first generation college student and a non-traditional student, earning a BAS in Technology Management from Bemidji State University while working full time, supporting a family and paying a mortgage. My background gives me a firm understanding of some of the challenges of earning an education.
IT is an awesome field with growth and earning potential for graduates. My hope is that you will find a passion for IT and your success and earnings will follow.
