I was lately thinking a lot about creating a personal website where I publish information about myself, e.g. published articles, gained certificates etc.
But I am not very sure about this. First I don't really like the idea to make information about myself available to everyone as for example idendity theft is quite common these days. Also I am not sure if this is something necessary to get recognized by companys and similar. I am not a professional yet but I am very interested in it-security related stuff and maybe such thing would help me somehow.
Mostly I would like something to get recognized by professionals, companys etc. as I also want to get more contacts, get in contact with several individuals, etc..
I am also not very sure if it is necessary to make my real name public in the internet or to work with an alias. There are quite a few people using only nicknames and are well known anyway. I guess that such peoples real names are known in the professional field anyway but maybe working with your real data would look more professional.
I wanted to know about your thoughts on this subject.
