Who are you?
Hi everyone. My name is Bob and I've been looking for a great InfoSec community for a while now and after reading through some of these threads I think this is the place to settle. I'm looking to connect with people who know their stuff and share experiences and help each other along. I've missed the forum scene and looking forward to connecting with other people who understand this industry and geek out about cool cybersecurity innovations.
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
I come from a web design and channel infrastructure background originally but over recent years have learned a lot about networking and system admin. I understand a lot of the principles behind C++ and Python but rarely get chance to use it in my line of work.
How'd you find us?
Saw a great Reddit article about Penetration testing 6+ year in the industry.
How long have you been interested in computers/infosec?
For a long time, since falling in love with movie Sneakers (lacked the confidence to look into back then), but after diving into system admin and networking over the last year I just fallen in love with the whole cyber security community. Mr. Robot was a great source inspiration (cliché I know) for me to start learning Ethical Hacking and I'm currently studying for C|EH, CISM, CHFI and CISA. I've decided after seven years in my current line of work it's time for a change and this is where I want to be.
