New to Ethical Hacker

Hello,

Well I thought I made a post introducing myself but I got logged out and don't find the post. So I am happy to be here and look forward to sharing and learning.

I retired from my employment after 12 years of IT Manager. I am now forced to un-retire and get back in the mix. I am bringing my security knowledge up to current bleeding edge as my 'White Hat' knowledge of 'Black Hat' activities is out of date.

I do know a few things and I am happy to share but primarily I have joined this and other communities seeking to enhance and improve my knowledg of those issues critical to safe and secure computing.

David

Re: New to Ethical Hacker

Well, welcome aboard, David.  Always glad to see folks using the knowledge, even if only to protect their own environments (ie - not trying to be a pentester by trade.)

You'll definitely have plenty of reading here, and can always ask questions, if you have any.

Again, welcome!

;D
Well you know, that's right. No place for old men. In fact because I learned on the Job (I have actually been working with computers and automated systems a very long time) I have no MCSE or any of that stuff. Still I did train lots of young 'uns with their certs how to actually do it. But it is an impediment to re-mployment to not have all them there fancy certs and whatnot.

By the way good Movie.

I have another life as well you can check me out on Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/ I think that gets you there and on IMDB at these links.
