I have been doing more CTFs and taking classes on things related to security. I’ve realized that I was trying to accomplish too much too fast and so I broke down the steps I plan to take to get into the security field. In no particular order these are the certs I’m focused on and why.

The Deets on Continuous Integration - 30 Jun 2019
