In this masters edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Adam Twitty, Robert Preston, Jeff Lang, and myself discuss security things.
This is another EIS podcast special at BSides Augusta. I have some close friends joining me for this one. Adam, Jeff, and Robert all part of a local user group in Columbia, South Carolina, aptly named ColaSec. I also worked with Adam and Robert at my first security gig.
BSides Augusta is one of my favorite BSides events. It's really well run. It has a great facility and there's so much to do. In fact, I took part in my first conference capture the flag (CTF) with some of the guys from ColaSec. It was quite the experience and a lot of fun. I highly recommend the conference for those free in mid-September.
In this episode we discuss:
- What it's like to be on a good team
- What you need to know to get into the field?
- What paths are available to get into infosec
- What is ColaSec?
