This is a solo episode between interviews.
I have been doing IT and security consulting for a long time. Over this time, I have noticed a few things that are worth noting when hiring a security consultant. In fact, I would say until you perform some basics and perform some due diligence on your own, don’t hire me or any other security consultant. Yes, this seems a little counter intuitive for me to say, “Don’t hire me,” but there are many common elements I see in environment after environment both on the proactive and responsive engagements.
This episode will touch on some of these elements and is by no means all inclusive.
The take away is to get to know thy self and do your home work!
