Not just a creeper anymore

Hello all. I have been lurking around this site off and on for a bit now and have learned a ton so I decided I should go ahead and join in on the conversation. I'm pretty new to the whole security thing but it has definitely taken a hold of me as the direction I want to take my career. This site has helped a ton with finding resources and training / certifications.

My background seems to be quite different than many of the people on this forum. I started digging ditches for a utility company and moved into electrical control systems. This naturally led into SCADA system operation and maintenance. After seeing how vulnerable SCADA systems are (though I really knew to what extent at the time) I started learning about cyber / network / system (whatever the proper term is) security. Now my interest has really turned to pentesting. And that's why I'm here.

Now I just need to make a pretty signature like everyone else and start playing with the other kids.

I also have a DCS and SCADA background. This is an area that is exploding in growth per NERC and the media. You've landed in a good spot. Good luck!

My thoughts exactly. If you can beef up your network and systems skills, that SCADA experience might be able to help you land a pretty cool, niche role somewhere.

Welcome to the forums!
The day you stop learning is the day you start becoming obsolete.

That's the goal. My biggest setback is my programming is extremely weak right now. Thanks for the welcome.
