    Hi
    Apart from one quick post yesterday I'm a total newbie on here but it looks like I'll be spending alot of time in this neck of the woods. :biggrin
    I've signed up with Advent for my sins, chiefly due to a lack of personal discipline - the incentive of having spent some big moolah on the Advent course will hopefully do the trick and see me with a nice new career. Just thinking longer term though, how feasible wuld it be to get in to the security side of things - I'm thinking anti-virus/malware detection and that sort of caper...? Short term I'll be quite happy tinkering - the Advent guy suggested initial recruitment was likely to be as a field engineer or something similar so I figure that would be a good place to start?
    Hm, I seem to have gone off on one already! I'm not sure if I've actually asked a question!?
    :eek:

    Welcome!

    Security's a good field... but, like the Advent guy mentioned, it's not something you'll start out doing. You'll likely have to advance through the ranks - field tech, desktop support tech, systems/server admin, network admin - before you have a good grasp on securing a network infrastructure. Security is certainly something worth learning!
