How to find your niche in information security

In this stag episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, I provide tips on how to find your niche and share my story of getting into information security.

This topic is one that I've submitted to a couple different conferences, but didn't get excepted. I still think it's an interesting topic and useful for those just getting into infosec. Find your niche is advice you will see other professionals give to new people in the field. I think it's good advice, but it can be frustrating figuring out how to do it. Some will find their niche quickly, while for others it may take a while. It took me a long time to figure out that I even wanted to be in infosec. I was then shocked when I got in and had to find a niche within a niche. 

In this episode I discuss:

  • Tips for finding your niche
  • Share my story of getting into infosec
  • Then getting into application security
