Operation Code and Sam Bisbee Talk About Getting Started in Security

In February 2019, Threat Stack hosted a meetup with the Boston chapter of Operation Code. Operation Code is a 501(c)(3) non-profit intensely focused on helping veterans, active duty military, and their spouses successfully transition into technology careers and providing continued support as they become established in their new careers. Operation Code is largely veteran-run, but it places a heavy emphasis on bringing non-veterans from the technology industry into its community for the invaluable mentorship and experience they bring to the table.

Numerous leaders from Threat Stack across technical disciplines and departments, including Threat Stack CSO Sam Bisbee, spoke at the February event, joined by a common interest to establish lasting mentor relationships with the veteran attendees.
