Serving as an Artillery Marine
Mark Orlando, CTO of Raytheon Cyber Protection Services, points to his time as an artillery Marine: "[You] never enough time or resources, you won't always like the outcome or agree with the larger strategy, but you have [to] be a master of your domain and do your part no matter what," he says.
The experience taught him to be both flexible and humble, "as there is always someone better/smarter/stronger than you." Serving as a Marine "has saved me a lot of frustration in cybersecurity," Orlando says.
