What's going on everyone!! In this episode of The Techtual Talk, Shamika aka the bougieblerd joins the show to talk about the NBA finals, her tech background, finances, and what it's like being cyber threat intelligence analyst.
Shamika was born & raised in Oakland, CA. Shamika has worked in tech/finance for almost 10 years but about 4 years in cybersecurity. She took a pretty non traditional path into tech. She doesn't have a college degree, and she doesn't code. Shamika is currently a cyber threat intelligence analyst working at Twilio, a company that provides programmable communications APIs.
Shamika says, "I've only been in threat intelligence for about 6 months, but I really love this domain. Cyber criminals are hilarious, and I enjoy tracking current and emerging threats."
