I’m not the most organised person, especially when it comes to staying focused on something (sorry was I talking about??). If you’ve read this blog before you would have picked up that I’ve decided to expand on my IT Security skills.
To that end I’ve created a 12 month training plan, nothing fancy just a list of technologies/software that I want to learn how to use better. It won’t make me an expert (I’m not that silly), but it will hopefully mean that come BSides London 2013 I might be able to give a track 3 talk.
The training plan includes, Ruby (not Python for the time being), wireshark, metasploit framework, nmap and a long period for scapy. I like the idea of being able to write packets so I’ve dedicated a lot of time to this.
Along the way I will blog about my progress and hopefully start getting some more InfoSec related posts up here instead of my ranting about stuff..
Below is the training plan, feel free to pass any comments if you think I’ve missed anything obvious, my goal is to be able to run pen tests (against my own systems), without resorting to “automated” tools.
I’m also looking (still) for a UK-based InfoSec mentor, if any of you lot are feeling generous (I’m not expecting a lot, just answering some questions when I get stuck). If you’re up for it let @infosecmentors know. 🙂
