The #EuropeanElections2019 have made me realize something: I am woefully ignorant of European politics. I'm embarrassed in the extreme. I will study and correct my inadequacy.
A watched processor never boots.
I found the answer to my question about Skorpion. I was almost impressed, until I saw that their own website doesn't use https.
I obtained a PowerPoint (never mind the source) and it referenced Skorpion. It's software, or a codename for a program, for cybersecurity in the US government. It's not a reference to the video game, and it's not a reference to Scorpion, a cybersecurity company. My Google search turned up all the wrong references. Can anyone give me more information, links, etc.?
I got the job! I’m excited to share the good news. I interviewed for a job at Allsafe Cybersecurity. Monday I started orientation. Today I was put to work protecting the digital assets of a big company (I’m not allowed to say who). The guy in the next cube is named Elliot. He’s really quiet, but seems nice enough. He knows his stuff. I think I’ll learn a lot from him. I’m probably not supposed to do this, but I copied the wallpaper from my desktop and brought it home to put on my own computer.
I have a free app from a national chain hardware store. That makes sense. They give me the app because it lubricates the buying process and ultimately generates more sales, both in-store and online.
But I paid for the network analyzer tool that I use regularly. The free version has 99% of the features I’ll ever use, but I paid for it anyway, because that’s the only way the developers make money unless they load it up with advertising.
Cybersecurity. Because the job will never be completely done. I'll post other stuff, too, because I'm not one-dimensional.
