Hi, Mark!

I started out by getting an antivirus scanner to check USB drives that friends gave

I'm Darrell Young.  As a life-long, seasoned technical person, I'm looking forward to learning more about our network of security professionals.  Now more than ever, we all need to put our best efforts into keeping our systems safe and secure from the threats haunting us.  The Colonial Pipeline fiasco recently showed us how imperative it is for all of us to whack the moles. 


All the best

I've been in the tech industry for over 3 decades.   Over the years I've done it all, from mainframe to embedded systems both hardware and software.  I'm typically a thorn in the side of teams I work with due to my focus on security.

Since earning CSSLP, I've been keeping an eye out for opportunities to start moving a bit more into security.  With the recent high profile supply chain related breaches, I think I'm positioned well.

After years with out passing certification, in the past I was MSCE VCP ASE CCA ; CISSP was a challenge so it is really special for me, like my first MSCE on NT4... 23 years ago.
