Cyber Security Pathway

I’m a lock picker, I understand systems and I like to win. Threats and opponents must always be constant so I can feel energised and driven. I like to look for triggers, vulnerabilities and enemies locked in systems, data and environments. I work well in a team and react fast to danger and threats. I have always had a passion for IT. I can influence and I write well.

I’m strong at Offense, Defence and Conflict. I understand the big picture and I like to fight with logic, reason and deception. I’m a Cyber Security Professional.
