mgcheung Posted November 11, 2011 Share Posted November 11, 2011 I thought I'd ask the Hak5 community for your thoughts and advice on getting started in Info Sec. I've watched the "From Couch to Career in 80 hours" and read the follow up on room362, but I still wonder how my background would be viewed in looking for a job. I have a fair amount of formal education in math and computer science and more specifically cryptography. I recently had an internship working on secure computation, specifically homomorphic encryption. I have been learning about pen testing topics and I have worked in an IT department before. I've thought about continuing in research type jobs, but I'm not sure if I would need a Ph.D. and I don't think I'll finish mine. Would my background in cryptography be interesting to pen testers? Thanks for your feedback. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
