Already an IT professional, Monika Mathur decided to upskill and reach for her career dreams with a cybersecurity qualification from VU Polytechnic.
“I wanted to make a successful career in cybersecurity and learn the latest technologies to support that. VU has got first-class infrastructure and technology to support this kind of learning, and a great reputation in the space.
My placement with VU’s IT Services Cybersecurity team, working in a real world environment, gave me hands-on experience and the chance to meet and learn from subject matter experts who supported, encouraged and inspired me with their career journeys.
I worked on a range of large projects and mini assignments – practical tasks that gave me a deep understanding of professional environments and ways of working.
Since graduating, I have taken up a position as an Information Security Analyst in one of the leading Internet Service Provider organisations.”
