cyber security careers

Emily Harmon’s career at hardware giant Bunnings has progressed from checkout to cyber security

When Emily was working in a customer-facing role at Bunnings, she would occasionally have to phone IT support. On those calls, she found she was curious about the job of the people on the other end of the line.

“I was also interested in how all our systems and tech interacted together,” she says. Emily was inspired enough that she enrolled in a Bachelor of Computer Science (Software Engineering) at Edith Cowan University. Then, after particularly enjoying a computer security subject, she switched her major to cyber security.

Emily, who is still completing her undergrad, has now been working at Bunnings for nine years and is part of the company’s cyber operations team, managing access privileges, policies and procedures for more than 55,000 employees.
