I’m Billy. This is my new site. I’m planning to track my journey from knowing next to nothing about penetration testing to getting the coveted OSCP.
I just finished my Bachelor of IT, majoring in Applied Computer Science and Networking & Security. There was very little in my degree to do with security, aside from very basic security practices and limited explanations of exploits.
From my limited exposure to the world of InfoSec, there seems to be no real progression from graduate to penetration testing. Most people I’ve met were working in IT for many years before moving into InfoSec. I’m hoping documenting my progress will aid others who want to follow a similar path.
Anyways, my next step is setting up a home lab and going through some CTFs. I’m planning to do write-ups on all of them.
We’ll see how I go.
