Elon Ramirez

Cybersecurity Analyst

A passionate and easy going individual who recently graduated from Cal Poly Pomona.  Throughout my time at Cal Poly Pomona, I learned how important cyber security is and what kind of steps one should take in order to secure systems from unwanted eyes. One essential lesson that comes to mind when thinking of cyber security is the CIA triad which is a cornerstone of cyber security. Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. I love to learn new things and grow my knowledge.
