Strategicsec Rookies Program

Posted: September 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

Got involved in the past week with Joe McCray’s rookies program over at Strategicsec.com and enjoying it so far. It means amping up ‘my game.’ But I look forward to that as well. Getting busier and busier and I think the future holds good things.

More to come as time goes on. But thought I would at least mention this. Almost done with my presentation for next weekend at DerbyCon. Looking forward to that as well.

On July 1st, I presented on “Breaking Out of the Echo Chamber” at BSides Cleveland. I had a great time considering it was my first time presenting. I didn’t really like speech class, but I find that I enjoyed my experience overall. A video of the presentation can be found on Adrian Crenshaw’s (irongeek) website.

Work has kept me pretty busy, but I am still involved with the IvyTech CCDC team, ISSA, and organized an Intro to Programming class for local area youth focusing on Python and Ruby (slides are located here:http://www.slideshare.net/WolfFlight/an-intro-to-programming ). I plan on doing that one again. I also joined Joe McCray’s Security Rookies. Looking forward to interning with Joe. All this in addition to my every day job of being a Systems Administrator and fighting the good fight for BLUE team.

DerbyCon is coming up again, the last weekend in September, and I got selected to present there as well. I am looking forward to that. I am scheduled to speak at 10AM on Saturday in the Stable Talks. Again, I look forward to it.
