I'm new to this particular forum. I've been in IT for almost 12 years, starting at the bottom as a helpdesk technician, working into a systems admin/engineer position, and then on to Cisco Route Switch, and now into Cisco Security. I am a CCNP Security very knowledgeable about Cisco Firewall, Cisco IPS, anything even remotely related to VPN, Identity Services Engine, and securing router platforms, etc. I have been holding myself hostage for quite a while. I have been eyeballing the OSCP for about 4 years but would not allow myself to do it until I finished up some Cisco certs since that pays the bills. Well, I finally buckled down this year and finished up and am quite excited (for the first time in quite a while) to begin working toward something new (to me) in IT.
So that's my story.
