https://www.swordandthescript.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/bab_023_kent_wilson.jpeg Some veterans struggle with finding purpose after military service. It’s hard to match the idealism of uniformed service – that is being part of something bigger than oneself. Kent Wilson, however, found purpose in his work in cybersecurity. The mission is very real every day, but it took a dinner with some old buddies that were still serving in the Army – after he got out – to make that point. Today he’s the vice president of Customer Experience at Bricata, which is a network security provider. In this episode, he shares how his uniformed experiences as an infantryman and paratrooper have influenced his career. He also describes how he got into cybersecurity and shares his advice for other veterans considering the field.
