“I wouldn’t be where I am in my career if it wasn’t for the information security ADP. Over the course of nine months, I was far ahead of my peers working at other firms because Raymond James challenged me to advance my technical knowledge while adapting to work in a collaborative, fast-paced financial firm. Not many fresh graduates can say that they obtained multiple advanced industry certifications while working alongside their CISO.”
