ABOUT THIS EPISODE: Today, on my first podcast episode, I talk about how I naively thought getting the CISSP could instantly make me $100,000 a year. Fortunately, this moment of not having a clue led me done a unique and fulfilling path into Cyber security.  This 9-year journey which I am still on, has been worth way more than the $100,000 coveted salary mark I was initially seeking. Here's to having a healthy dose of ignorance. Join me as we dive into all areas of cyber and the lives of excellent cyber professionals. Please subscribe and share to support this podcast.
