Foundations in Security
I have taken a few days off from writing this because I have received word back on the application that I submitted, while I had a good feeling that I was not going to meet all the requirements I still felt I needed to try. The company I applied with is one that I would consider a leader in the industry, it doesn’t hurt that 3 of the people I would give almost anything to work for or with was currently with the company when I applied.
I have looked over the rejection letter and determined what I needed to work on to improve my chances at getting to work with this company, or if things happen the way they usually do a company that one of these three idols work for.
The next two years will include the following training:
I will also be asking those InfoSec Guru’s that I follow for other advice on what Skill sets that they feel are important in the field. I will include that here, in hopes that other future forensicators find it useful.
