How to make time for a home lab

In this timely episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Chris Maddalena and I continue our home lab series by answering a listener's question on how to find time for a home lab.

Chris (@cmaddalena) and I were asked the question on Twitter, "How do you make time for a home lab?" We answered the question on Twitter, but also decided the question was a good topic for an EIS episode. Home labs are great for advancing a career or breaking into information security. To find the time for them requires making them a priority. It's also good to have a purpose. The time I spend with a home lab is often sporadic and coincides with research on a given area.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Making a home lab a priority
  • Use cases for a home lab
  • Ideas for fitting a home lab into a busy schedule
