Attack Path

Attack Path

Herein lies my journey from a passionate muggle to the competent practitioner. This is my Attack Path

I am attempting to document some of my goals, experience, and learning opportunities as I move through my career within information security. Just like everyone else, allocating the time to go above-and-beyond in every situation, to excel at any task given, and then document it all - it can be challenging if not impossible. I'll update this post over time with more details and updates on my progression.
