I’ve spent a fair amount of time wondering where my path takes me. While I’ve had a great passion for InfoSec, security in general but mostly red teaming and penetration testing. Those of you who know me best, know that I do have not ‘officially’ worked for a security department. Most of my career has landed within the realm of ‘General IT’ departments or consulting firms.

but you actually have to
change them yourself.”

My heart tells me to follow the path towards a real red team. That doesn’t mean I’m switching jobs. Leaving a place that has invested in me. Nor anything work related.
It does mean I want to spend some time on refining some skills that I have had seldom chances to use in the past several years. Usually, I don’t give much stock in certifications, but after much research, I do think the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) has some value.
This page, which I thought originally was going to be just-another-blog-post, will be a work in progress. As I continue the journey, I’ll be updating links on useful pre-training to prepare myself. If someone else out in the ether may benefit I do hope they let me know. The target audience is primarily myself.
