How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

NM has always been known for it’s culture. To this day, I have still not received a “no”, when asking a colleague for a lunch or coffee meeting. Networking was an invaluable part of my internship experience that allowed me to determine where I wanted to go within the Cyber Security domain.
