Path to InfoSec Success – Blog #0

Hello, my name is Eddie and I am a security professional. I have been in the Information Security field for about 5 or 6 years. I have been in IT for 12 years. As I continue to learn from some of the smartest people in the current workforce, I have noticed a few themes that appear to remain true for all of the smart, successful, and respected people in Information Security.

  1. Write a blog
  2. Have a github repository
  3. Write technical papers
  4. Give talks at cons

I am (quite obviously) writing this blog. This is me working on number 1. I plan to write about my continuing journey, share some experiences, and maybe even share some great cocktail recipes (see my hobby at Average Joe Drinks).

Two is a lot more difficult for me as I am not nor will I ever be a developer. I am however a security professional and do tasks frequently that can be helped by creating scripts and I plan to put those here (bucfoo github). I also plan to delve into python a bit not just for security but to help me with my YouTube hobby.

The third one I will work on as the opportunities come. The fourth one will come with time. I am not completely terrified to talk in front of people. I am however at least a little bit terrified talking in front of people that most likely know more than me. That is a fear that I will have to get over. And I will. What I do need is to write a talk that is relevant and will be a benefit to a information security professional audience. This will happen…eventually.

If you made it this far, thank you very much. I will write more as I have things that I feel are worth reading.
