My original degree was in mechanical engineering at New Mexico State University, and I have an MBA from the University of California-Riverside. However, for the last eighteen years I have worked in information technology, and more specifically,  information security for the last eight. I have achieved several certifications in infosec including a CISSP. I have enjoyed working in the IT field, and would now like to share some of the things I've learned along the way to help others get started in this field.
