  • Terrence D. Williams has a guest post on ‘Smarter Forensics’ shared his process for how he picks a new skill and puts in the “grunt work” to learn it by setting aside 4 hours a day. I think some formatting was lost in translation though because the numbering system made me twitch a bit.

  • Tyler Hudak at TrustedSec throws out the idea of performing ’rounds’, similar to the medical industry, in the IR/SOC space. Sharing what we’ve found, and what we’re stuck on, has a net positive effect for all involved. Sometimes you’ll share something that someone else has experience dealing with, or sometimes you’ll share something that helps someone with their problem. By dealing with our problems as individuals we’ll either reinvent the wheel or not invent the wheel at all.
