Are there people you can pay to sit exams for you? I know it is wrong, but I don't really give a shit and I don't really respect all these time wasting, money hungry institutions. Qualifications like "Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma", and "agile scrum master." Basically, absolute shite some firms ask for. I would not mind paying some cunt somewhere to sit it for me, so that I can say that I am a great "scrum master," or what have you.

Probably, but given the cost of some of those courses you'd be better off just taking out a hit on the hiring manager.

I'm all for lying and scheming, but if you can't even find /uni/ what fucking good are you to any future employer, regardless of how frivolous the job? Sod /uni/ what about a search engine?

six sigma is one of those things that's quite widespread and it's reasonable for a company to expect to hire someone with some experience. But getting a certificate that says you're a trained black belt is a complete waste of time because 99% of it is quite job-specific experience.

The worst is when you see companies who have some sort of niche software to run their business that's shared by about 10 companies in the country, and their HR department says experience using it is vital.

Just remember at the end of the day there's no perfect applicant. If they want to hire some high-flyer who has 30 years experience in the same job and can jump right in with no training, then good luck to them. The next best thing is the candidate who can show they are worth training.

Infosec is a really weird self-regulated industry that popped out of nowhere about twenty years ago. Before that there was no real reference point as to what was considered competency, no established orthodoxy.

In other words the guys in their thirties who are on the advisory boards of hedgefunds, acting as CTOs to wall street banks and launching ten-figure IPOs were just a bunch of script kiddies on EFNet twenty years ago. When the infosec boom started (generally considered the @stake l0pht buyout) it was usually the people who made the most noise, and got the most media attention, who ended up on top of the shit pile.

Case in point: Dan Kaminsky. A heroin addict whose computers have been invaded more times than Poland but gets given a DNS root key to look after because he was in all those magazines that one time he actually found a bug.

Tl;dr - the inmates run the asylum.

Not him, but I also work in InfoSec - it's the hottest area of technology now, for obvious reasons, but as >>413472 says, it is almost impossible to regulate or see who is a charlatan.


This guy for instance. Great hacker, but.

What do you need to get a foot in the door?

I remember an infosec contractor at work. He sat infront of me and he used to just surf the web for 3 hours a day and go to meetings. He set himself a company and all. Even brought in his old friend as an "assistant."

HD Moore is another good one. A long time ago he got caught hacking NRL (or somewhere on navy.mil my memory isn't as good as it was), something which isn't mentioned all that much any more, funnily enough.

He decided to parlay his five minutes of script kiddie fame into creating an open source version of Core Impact, in which exploits are packaged as modules into this all-singing all-dancing centralized hacking program.

Unlike core impact, however, he didn't hire a bunch of skilled guys to write reliable useful exploits, rather he encouraged other wanna be hackers and fame-seekers on IRC to port public exploits to metasploit (the resulting modules rarely working outside the "author's" own computer) while he just sat around and took all the credit (and Matt Miller did all the actual work on the framework itself).

Rapid7 acquired metasploit (and Moore) in 2009, turning the erstwhile exploit cataloger into a millionaire overnight.

Moore is now on more boards of directors, advisory councils, and conference panels than I can even begin to count. A pillar of the security community, who the media will always go to for a quote... and all while having a mere fraction of the security knowledge of the people who built his program for him. Oh, and they'll even sell you a dodgy certification in advanced metasploit click-monkeyry to boot:


Actually just go and watch the HBO documentary "Silicon Valley" and imagine that they're doing infosec instead of compression and that there's like 10,000 Bigheads.

> it is almost impossible to regulate or see who is a charlatan.

It's funny, Brian Martin used to run an "Errata" page on attrition.org where he called out all the plagiarists, charlatans, and snake oil salesmen (or at least the ones who weren't his mates) but gave up because at the end of the day it didn't change anything. Once someone has a solid reputation (deserved or not) it's basically impossible to change the industry's general opinion about them.

Even with guys like Kaminsky where it's an open secret that he's a complete dunce, no company in their right mind would fire him or turn him down for a position - his reputation and media presence alone are worth leaving him nodding out in the executive bathroom all day.

So yeah, I guess I misunderstood that byline and assumed the name to be rarer than it is. Ho hum.

In other news this journalist advising people about the importance of protecting personal information has his phone number, address and date of birth on a CV he uploaded to his web site.
