Yes. So, you know, I think the thing with pen testing, I think a lot of people that apply on this panel
are attracted to the career for the probably the same reasons that I had. Like I said, I did. A master's in computer science did a lot of programming work,
but for me, it was kind of being on the offense of coming from an offensive perspective of doing the research. Digging and I really enjoy the pre pre information phase would be kind of talk with clients to you what you need to do.
And then from that point on, depending on what kind of test is really kind of
determines, you know what you dig into? I think it's more fun when you take it from a black box approach to where you as you go through the faces you really accomplish and beautiful, good as you kind of, you know, breaking the systems and buying things. And ultimately what you were doing is helping
this customer better security networks. And from where I work, that's a that's a good thing. I've also helped develop pen testing teams, and I've worked with, you know, I've been led people that do paint testing, and that's a very different perspective because you're gonna backed off off of the technical rule. But it still is one of the things that
yeah, long as you understand the face, is what people do. You can
let the experts that specialize in these certain things, which I don't know if any of the mentor mentee that I talked to your on here. But we definitely have people in this. I bury cohort that very specific Skip knows that. I think, you know, as you do with a pen tester, you could be one of those key roles on one of those teams. If that's the route that you take
wonderful. Thank you so much more. And chain. Would you like to add anything about your experience either working as a pen tester or those that you know we're doing that kind of work?
Yeah, I mean just ah, kind of similar to Mark have been a number of different engagements from a penetration testing tam standpoint primarily internal Cos I've been working for so
working that that aspect of penetration testing but then also working with various third party companies to set up and and engage ah ah pen testing job for various comes I've worked for is well, so
very, very flight. They're very fun and exciting aspect to the information security field
and a number of different things you can do do from a penetration testing Pam Penetration testing standpoint from overall general penetration test to something Maur catered to be specific Thio with applications, wireless
physical penetration, testing, social engineering, et cetera.
