I plan on working in the field of cybersecurity, protecting confidential information from getting into the wrong hands. Kean has prepared me by allowing me to present at national research conferences, bettering my communication and presentation skills, along with providing many networking and professional development opportunities. I was able to meet a lot of important people in the field that without Kean, may not have been possible.
