What Is This Post?

This post is to help you navigate the resources within this site.

There are several ways I can help you.

Clearly you’re interested in hacking and having a career in Cybersecurity, why else would you be here? If that’s the case – and you are looking for a job in security and you want to be a Cybersecurity Professional then you’ve made an excellent career choice.

There are two reasons why you’ve made a great choice:

  1. There’s Mega Demand In Cybersecurity. Period.
  2. It’s Well Paid (After You’ve Got The Experience…)

What About Coronavirus And InfoSec Hiring?

That, is a good question and the answer is that InfoSec Professionals have been categorized (at least in the US) as being “essential workers” – why? Because they are the backbone of the economy, quite literally, keeping the lights on!

If you’re interested in learning from InfoSec professionals then I’d recommend you check out our interviews and learn from the professionals and the advice that they share with how they got their break in Cybersecurity.

Learn From IT Security Professionals

There’s no point me telling you about the birds and the bees since I am only one voice.

Instead, what I’ve done, is that I’ve interviewed dozens of InfoSec Professionals that have experience and knowledge to share regarding certifications and how to get employed in the InfoSec space – and there’s a bunch of useful stuff to learn from these guys and gals.

I'm Henry, the guy behind this site. I fancy myself as a bit of a Cyber Expert Specialist and I've been Growth Hacking since 2002, yep, that long...

  1. I’d love to learn how to be a hacker and learn how to crack open email addresses and passwords

  2. I have got the interest and motivation to start learning ethical hacking but i dont know which topic to start first ie wireless hacking, python, social engineering? Any advice would be appreciated

    1. Best advice is that you’ve got to start somewhere. Social engineering is fascinating. Learn how to use some social engineering tools and you’ll be in a great spot. Good luck with it all.

    1. A lot of these courses are pretty good, I just removed the links to Udemy. I’m planning on adding new courses to this page.
