Hello and thank you!

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself as I am new to these forums, I've been reading as much as I can over the past couple of weeks, soaking in the vast amount of knowledge the other members here have provided and I must say there is a lot of good information. So thank you everyone who has contributed to these forums!

As for me, my name is Mat, a couple of months ago I graduated from a college level Computer Security program and after graduating I started working as the Security Administrator for a major automotive company on a contract basis. The hope is that the position turns into a full-time, permanent position (my manager would like to keep me, but he has to convince his managers that security is important, so he can't make me any promises).

So far I've really enjoyed the work and I'm glad to have finally gotten some real experience (as opposed to classroom based lab experience) in the field. Over the past few weeks of doing a variety of different things for my job I've decided that Penetration Testing/Ethical Hacking is where I would like to focus my career as I gain more experience and continue learning/earning certifications.

I will probably be mostly quiet on these forums for the moment as I continue to learn. I just wanted to finally take the time to register and say hello!

- Mat

Re: Hello and thank you!

This sounds like a bad cliche' / reference, but I'll also - roll out the 'Welcome Matt!'

(OK, so I'm on meds from a car accident a few weeks ago, and that just struck me as funny tonight!  <sorry>  Bad pun)

Re: Hello and thank you!

I'll second the Thank You part of Mat's message. The many welcomes he received shows just how willing to help members of our community are.

Glas you made yourself known. Let us know if there's anything we can do for you.

Re: Hello and thank you!

Again, many thanks for the warm welcome. You seem to be a very friendly community :)

I will certainly contribute where possible, though for the moment I'm certainly primarily in a learning stage. I really enjoyed the talk floating around here from the ChicagoCon a couple of years ago, Don. Very insightful so thank you for that.

Thanks for the warning j0rDy, I'll keep that in mind ;)
