Greetings to the ISC(2) community.
With a background of more than 40 years of global telecommunications and systems experience in the Information Technology Security industry, it has been a pleasure to meet so many dedicated professionals in the ISC(2) community. It is especially refreshing to see how many of our organizations work together to improve the body of knowledge. One of my current efforts related to a sister organization is as Vice President of Education for the Information Systems Security Association (Northern Virginia chapter). Members of ISC(2) have been mentoring members of ISSA and providing guidance related to CISSP studies.
Thank you to those of you in the community who participate in such efforts and many thanks to our sponsors.
From a risk perspective, I often recommend: Smile and Keep Smiling - Explore Opportunities.
I'm a young (at least in mind) professional, finally heading into an above-board and socially responsible security role.
I've spent the last few years mastering my trade in all things IT related- Virtualisation, Networks, VDI, Firewalls, Servers, Windows, Linux etc etc, and I have been involved with several well know, large London-Based organisations.
However, my passion is Security.
I'm particularly interested in "Hacking" (White hat only of course 😉 ) and enjoy reverse engineering malware samples when I can get them safely into my quarantined lab. I'm heading for the CEH, just as soon as I can carve out some time, and eventually I'll proceed to the CISSP. I also plan on picking up the unrelated OSCP if and when I am ever ready to complete it.
I'm keen to connect with like-minded professionals, and share any insights or anecdotal experiences that I feel could benefit the community.
Can I just apologise for any poor attempts at humour that you may experience, I work alone a lot, and I need some humour to keep me just sane enough to stay in touch with the human world....
