A few of you guys really lit a fire under my ass.
I am 29 and have a girlfriend of 3 years whom i want to start a family with. While I love my job, it is not a job that I can have a family on.
So over the last few weeks I have made a big decision. I have spoken with a few Ogers, namely DominicVelluso and B17. A thread TheSeanster made a while back about programming stuck with me aswell. While talking about things with these OGers, I was watching Mr. Robot. That show reminded me how much fun I had fucking around with BackTrack back in highschool. That was about when I was speaking to Dom and he informed of the successes he is having in his work.
So I decided to get back to my IT roots and take a path that I have been too chicken shit to go down. I decided to go into Network Security, specifically Penetration Testing. I have not decided whether I want to go Web-App or Network security yet, but I am leaning towards the latter. I have started studying and I am half way into the first of 4 books. Below is my overall mission plan.
pentestlab and other labs throughout January.
