A great opportunity, an even better experience

My summer internship has been somewhat different from that of my colleagues. Where other interns were massively involved in software development and pushing their products to production, I was involved in information security operations. Coming from a military background, I was used to a very different way of getting things done. This mindset was further reinforced through academia with the perfect scenario always being the end goal. This is not the case in the real world.
