Interview: Sumit “Sid” Siddharth of NotSoSecure

| July 31, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sumit Siddharth of NotSoSecureTechnology permeates society. This is true not just in the United States but also across the globe. With it comes the opportunity to level the playing field amongst vastly different cultures around the world. But the one thing that remains is the constantly evolving virtual battlefield and its effects on the real world. And if one shows an uncanny ability to navigate this arena, it matters not from where they came. One such individual is Sid Siddharth of NotSoSecure.

Sid’s story is one of success. But it’s not from luck or privilege. Sid’s success comes from the simple concept of hard work. Each step along the way, Sid gave it his all and it was noticed. Even when there was no such thing as a professional ‘ethical’ hacker, Sid continued with his passion and that simple tool in hand… hard work. Because of that, doors opened for him in India, the UK, the US and beyond. Now he has his own company and travels the world as a speaker, instructor and penetration tester. In this interview, Sid shares his thoughts with the EH-Netters around the world looking to follow in his footsteps.

First Look: Cybrary Free IT Training

| March 27, 2015

Cybrary - LogoAs a life-long learner, and someone who is passionate about both bettering myself and helping others to reach higher and achieve their goals, I’m constantly on the lookout for fresh educational materials particularly in the areas of IT Administration and Security. I’m always amazed at the breadth of knowledge that is available, albeit, often at a substantial cost. I’m even more amazed at the amount of free content available but can’t help but be anxious about the quality, validity and dubious characters claiming to be experts just because they have a YouTube Channel. I’ve recently had the opportunity to get an up-close look at Cybrary, a relatively new online training provider with some known instructors. Oh… And before I forget, I should mention – they’re FREE! Could this be the best of both worlds?

Cybrary’s goal is spelled out very clearly when they describe “Our Revolution” throughout their site. They state, “We believe IT and Cyber Security training should be free, for everyone, forever. We believe that everyone, everywhere, deserves the OPPORTUNITY to learn. What they do with the opportunity is up to them, but the opportunity should be available. Join us in demanding liberation, help us in forcing change.” That’s all well and good. But how’s the actual training?
