How Valencia College’s cybersecurity program prepared this graduate for a role with the Department of Homeland Security

Geovanny Perez has always wanted to protect others. That’s why he worked as a lifeguard at an Orlando resort hotel for several years – and why he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2010.

And it’s why today this Valencia College graduate, who studied cybersecurity and digital forensics at Valencia’s West Campus, is now working as a digital forensics analyst for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, where he assists in tracking down child pornographers, sex traffickers and drug dealers.
