Justin Lattimore is a Navy veteran training for his next career in cyber security.

Although he’ll work with different equipment, he still aims to keep people safe. In the Navy, Lattimore ensured that pilots and their crews were safe. Now, he is studying to keep people’s data safe. He is pursuing an Associate in Applied Science in Information Technology – Cyber Security at Cleveland Community College.
