Networking is arguably one of the most important actions one can take to increase personal brand and connect with those who can help build and grow careers.
One productive first step in the journey towards building a network is joining LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a professional networking site which provides the business community with the opportunity to connect on a global scale with a vast individual membership pool, along with businesses, schools, and others. Excelsior College is well represented on LinkedIn and sponsors a number of groups sure to meet any alumni or student’s interests.
Peers and alumni are a great place to start building your network.

Given the fast pace and ever-changing environment of cybersecurity, cultivating relationships and leveraging networks is particularly important for cybersecurity students and practitioners.
Fortunately, Excelsior College, through its National Cybersecurity Institute, provides cybersecurity students and graduates a vehicle to vastly improve both the quality and depth of their network. Click the link below to access the site.
At the Institute, alumni and current students can interact with the movers and shakers of the cybersecurity field, stay abreast of current trends and developments, and continue their education via webinars and training. Check out a few of NCI’s offerings using the links below.
As with most relationships, networking requires both giving as well as receiving. Providing guidance, mentoring, and support to others are all actions that help to build quality networks. The value of the wealth of knowledge and experience provided by Excelsior College students and alumni cannot be overstated. The National Cybersecurity Institute is pleased to provide a platform where cybersecurity students and graduates can share their experiences and expertise with others in a welcoming environment.
The National Cybersecurity Institute hosts free interactive virtual cyber networking events that provide an exchange of information regarding public and private sector career opportunities, certification descriptions and trainings, and the latest alumni and student support services. Mark your calendar for May and be sure to sign up for the next virtual cyber networking event.
The National Cybersecurity Institute is at the center of the cybersecurity conversation, a place where you can be as well!
