Working the Mission
Speaker: I'm a cyber intrusion analyst, which essentially is testing networks for vulnerabilities so performing scans and looking for holes that attackers might use to gain access to networks. I was a contractor previously at another government organization and even though I was doing pretty good work and the pay was great as a contractor, the mission here was really what I was after. There are activities that I worked on that make front page headlines and I can say I know all about that, I had a hand in that. The things that happen here at NSA really have national and world ramifications. Coming here you really get a chance to find out why is it that we do the things that we do, being able to see things that are happening nationally and know that you were sitting at the table for things so, it's a pretty indescribable feeling.
