Princeton Day School was honored to welcome alum Adam Bromwich '92, via Skype, to join an Upper School STEAM course on Monday, April 30 and talk with students about his work as Senior Vice President of Security Technology and Response at Symantec, the world's leading cyber security company.
Mr. Bromwich gave a bit of background of his time at Princeton Day School: a student keenly interested in architecture, he also was the first person to take the student newspaper, The Spokesman, into an electronic format (pre-internet, desktop publishing was the cutting-edge technology at that time). He graduated and went on to earn his undergraduate degree in Architecture at Princeton University, and an MBA from Yale School of Management. Though he always thought he would end up an architect, Mr. Bromwich became interested in computer programming and ultimately found his way into his current role.
At Symantec, Mr. Bromwich leads a global team of engineers and analysts to develop security technologies that protect more than 200 million Norton and enterprise customers worldwide. Protecting both businesses and individuals, Symantec provides integrated cyber defense against sophisticated attacks across endpoints, infrastructure, and cloud. The company is well-known for the Norton and LifeLock Digital Safety Platforms to help protect individuals' personal information, devices, home networks, and identities at home and across their devices.
Mr. Bromwich described his job as a constant "cat-and-mouse" game of always having to keep up with the latest hacks and schemes. From his enthusiastic presentation, it seemed clear that he is invigorated by the work. The topic of cyber security could not be more timely, and the students were thoroughly engaged listening to one of the experts in the field--as well as an alum--discussing the many facets and components of the landscape today.
