Welcome to TechVets, the podcast.
A show dedicated to exploring the world of tech and cyber security through the eyes of industry leaders and ex forces personnel.
We’ll delve into the top issues that are shaping global tech debate and we’ll hear real life stories from the people who are driving forward with careers in a global cybersecurity market which is projected to reach £210 billion by 2026.
In this show we discuss gender equality in cyber and tech jobs, TechVets Capture the Flag team, the future of the UK tech industry and why ex forces people can play a significant role in this growing sector.
Joining us for this podcast is TechVets CEO and former soldier James Murphy alongside Rhianna King, also a forces veteran and currently a leading cyber threat intelligence analyst for CGI. Rhianna will be starting a new role with Security Alliance as a Senior Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst (CTI) later this year.
