2020 what a year!
I interviewed for a new position at a different local financial institution in early January. I accepted their offer at the end of the month. It was a big change. I spent over twenty years building and securing solutions at my previous employer. After that amount of time, leaving was feeling like a loss, like breaking up a long time relationship.
Things that helped me to get me through this was talking to my mentors and the excitement that the new opportunity would bring.
Less then a month after I started the new work, the pandemic hit. So before I got settled in my office, we expanded work from home and left the campus for my home office.
My home office took some getting used to but what helped the most was to move out of the house to my ham radio shack. This made it feel like I was at an office since it was separate from the house.
Now I rotate to the office for one week and the next three weeks are Work From Ham shack (WFH).
With all of the changes, it has taken months to get back to a good rhythm and balance!
I hope you are all safe and well.
@Radioteacher welcome back! You'll notice quite a few things were updated with the Community while you were gone.
The Chapter section is very nice and I got connected to my local chapter.
I submitted some CPE's in the portal for some presentations to the BSidesSATX in July, the local Women in Cybersecurity affiliate in August and the local (ISC)2 chapter last week. It was a very smooth process and it updated very quickly.
I see the agenda is online for (ISC)2 Congress. Things are looking up for (ISC)2!
