I finally decided what I want to be when I grow up! Every time I tell someone that I want to be a hacker when I grow up they either smile or they look confused? When I finally start explaining infosec they usually think I am some sort of wizard or criminal depending on the context of the conversations.
I spent years working in different jobs. I attended school. I spent a lot of time searching for what I wanted to do with my life. I always came back to the building and breaking computer systems. Help Desk, Field Tech, JR Pacs Admin, IT Engineer, Network Engineer, etc the list goes on and that’s just IT jobs. I currently work for a Managed Service provider as a “Network Security and Compliance Engineer” Which means I see weird issues that the level 1 and help desk staff escalate to me. I also do stuff like office 365 migrations and Server migrations along with anything that has the word “Security” in it. It has been a fantastic learning opportunity. I get to see all of the weird issues that have helped me sharpen my troubleshooting skills as well as system administration skills.
As my site grows hopefully I can keep things well organized by utilizing the tags in the upper right-hand corner. Over time I will be adding my notes, tutorials, and research.
