Jay Schulman's goal is to help grow information security professionals and developers. As an industry, we're short quality professionals who understand how to communicate security to executives and other business people. Additionally, too few developers understand security and can help build it into their software. Through interviews with infosec professionals and developers, you'll learn how others have grown their careers in security.
