Throughout our careers in the security industry it’s not uncommon that we’re asked “how can I get started in security?” It’s also one of the questions we like to answer most, as we love for others to be able to learn from our mistakes (of which we have made plenty).

In this episode we talk about reasons to consider or avoid the industry, our personal journeys into our current positions, what sort of skills you’ll need and how best to hone them, what free resources are at your disposal to learn, and how you can turn those resources into gainful employment. While the information security industry may not be for everyone, it has certainly been an enjoyable place for us to call home, and we encourage you to consider it as well. Join us in this conversation!
