Testing, testing. May I have your attention, please. *Ahem* Allow me to introduce myself and this new series of articles for The Ethical Hacker Network. My name is Stephanie, better known as Steph or InfoSteph in the community. I have been working as a security professional for the past year and a half, but I have been in the security industry for 3 and a half years. I’ve been in tech for 6.5 years. In that time, I held two different security positions, but both were corporate security roles with a lot of responsibility and steep learning curves. It has been a wild ride, one with failures and errors galore. However, I wouldn’t change my past for anything. As for my future… spoiler alert… I want to be a CISO, and I have a plan to get there. But before I get into the weeds of all of that, it’s only right that we start from the beginning.
