I would say its was worth the time and effort. I embarrassed all of the 10 domains which did help be learn more about security faster than I thought I would but also utilized my CISSP as a security practitioner with an Audit mentality. That gave me a niche that has worked well for all these years. I realized you can follow specific tracks Technical or non-technical but be successful in each based on your mindset and degree of success.
Hello! My name is Patrick Daniels and I'm an Information Systems Specialist at St. Philips College in San Antonio, Texas. I'm also the Team Lead for our Network Security Team. I graduated from St. Philip's College with dual degrees in Information Security/Assurance and Network Administration in May 2016. I hold CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications. I also hold NSTISSI No. 4011 and CNSSI No. 4012 certifications from the Committee on National Security Systems.
I'm currently pursuing the Security+ certification and have a strong desire to obtain the SSCP certification.
I am very excited to have joined the community! I am making a career change and returning to school to earn my BS in Cybersecurity and information assurance. I am looking forward to learning not just in school, but in the IT community! I hope to make some neat and informative connections! Any advice is always welcome!
