I never thought it would be like this

I've wanted to get a cybersecurity related job for a few years now. And finally, after a long wait, I've got one! It is a great feeling being able to wake up in the morning and get to do something I actually enjoy. But it is also a daunting experience in which you have to learn and move faster than light in order to keep being productive, important and useful. Otherwise you will become obsolete in a matter of days.

My first thoughts


I've wanted to get a cybersecurity related job for a few years now. And finally, after a long wait, I've got one! It is a great feeling being able to wake up in the morning and get to do something I actually enjoy. But it is also a daunting experience in which you have to learn and move faster than light in order to keep being productive, important and useful. Otherwise you will become obsolete in a matter of days.

I've been working hard for a couple of years to be able to get to where I am now. But I never thought I will need to work 10 times harder to keep being where I am. And to have to work even harder in order to keep moving forward. That is something that has been keeping me awake last couple of months. It's hard to keep your focus and motivation at 10x everyday. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I'm just amazed at how incredibly fast you have to do stuff. Really amazed.

Keeping the momentum


Now that I have a good (basic) understanding into how the cybersecurity field, and tech field for that matter, moves, it's time to keep working and keep moving forward. That's why I have to keep doing cool projects and research and lots of stuff besides work related stuff. I have many projects in mind but there are a couple that I would like to try in order to improve in different areas. The main projects that come to mind are as follow:
  1. Integrate Elasticsearch in the website for two purposes. First use it as a SIEM and use it as a search engine for the blog.
  2. Become AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner ASAP, I think I have the required knowledge, just a brief review of the topics and I'm ready to tackle the certification exam
  3. Continue Working in The Kraken which is a project that I'm working on and something I will write in more detail soon.

There are many more ideas and projects in which I want to work. But, unfortunately I don't have unlimited time and now, with a job, I have to split my time in order to became the best in both areas.

Thank you so much to everyone who took some time to read this or any of my blog posts. I promise I'll keep working to make greater content in every place I'm so you can also learn a thing or two. The idea is that we all learn and grow together.
