Re: Breaking In

You and I were on the same wavelength. I wrote a similar post at the almost the same time! Here is my story and my road to pen testing: http://www.pwnag3.com/2011/12/my-road-t ... sting.html

Re: Breaking In

Thank you both for taking the time to write up your experiences, they were both good reads.  It's encouraging to know that the same work I'm putting in as an admin has gotten others into infosec careers.  I love reading success stories :)

Re: Breaking In

Hi Dark_knight/cd1zz

Wow, I'm working on this since the last quarter of the year during my appraisal with my employer. They are interested and given opportunity to learn (not from their pocket  ;)) atleast I got opportunity where I can show my passion on security/pen testing to move into Sec testing...

I have joined couple of courses (out of my own pocket) to SWSE & eCPPT. I hope by end of first quarter of this year or around April 2012, I get this completed(again it depends on how hard I put my effort).

I'm yet to start a blog to share my learning experience and articles...

Glad to see your success stories...
Cheers

Re: Breaking In

Excellent reads guys!  Makes me feel that I am on the right path.  This would explain why I don't have a hobby outside of computer related stuff :D

This would probably be a good excercise for those wondering what their next step would be.  Write up about where you are and how you got there and where you would like to be.
