My Starting Point
One year ago I finally decided to make a dream come true for myself and to get into the field of cyber security. At this point, I was 36, happily married, father of two kids and had a good job working as a product owner for a large German based e-commerce company.
I already had some practical experience with hacking tools, like nmap, John the Ripper and the like and also had a solid foundation on IT concepts like networks, system architecture, programming languages, APIs and so on from former jobs.
But since I’ve written my first lines of code in QBasic and Turbo Pascal for the first time, I always wanted to become something like a “Hacker”. So because, I already knew that I was unhappy with my job at this point and that it was time for a change, I decided to give my old a dream a chance to become true.
