Welcome to my Info Sec/Cyber Sec Journey!

While studying for certifications and generally attempting to learn more in the limited free time I have (as the internet will state adulating is not fun) with new information security (Infosec) or Cyber Security (Cyebrsec)I figured I’m already taking notes, why not see if someone else might learn something, or have a better way to look back for something with a blog. I guess I should start That I am not a super infosec “rockstar” I just do this for my career and is something I enjoy learning more about. I know I have my weak spots (coding/programing is a major bad area) But someone else might have the same issues and learn something or if I am being hard on myself I can look back and go “wow I have learned a lot…remember when I struggled with Regex”. Also doing a blog can get me some potential feed back to help learn from the community versus a short Twitter post.

But mainly it gives me a place to record my thoughts and get feedback on what I find interesting or can even be honest about and not understand

What will be shared?

  • Reviews/what I learned from webinars
  • Things I learn or find interesting from my studies
  • Maybe some PowerShell/Bash and eventually Python to get feed back when I am stuck or examples of things I’ve learned
  • My experience setting up my Home Lab
  • anything that gives me a headache and I solve
  • Or any possible thing I think can help with my career

Now that the basic intro out of the way, why Morton (or M0rt0n I should say). The name started as a joke at work when I would become rather displeased with something, or something not making sense/be up to the standards I set for myself. For whatever reason I found it funny and it turned into Morton hears a who (which is why its like that on twitter) and just seemed like a better nick name for me, now since I wanted to keep this more infosec I mixed it up a little into m0rt0n hears infosec.

These post do not reflect my employer or anything, but just my personal ramblings of things I find interesting, from the simple “that was easy” to the concepts I just flat out struggle with there will be a little bit of everything. Feel free to take from it what you will , But just know that this is me sharing my journey of self taught learning and hopefully growth. Just remember, when in doubt it was DNS and/or the firewall.
