Let's try something /g/. Post your age, the OS you use, and your job.
Age - 24
OS - Windows/Debian
Job - Part-time wage cuck (Still in college)
Yes I know I'm a walking stereotype; I don't care. I'm getting paid solid money to build useful sites. I have backend skills too and someday I'll move up, but for now I'm happy making easy money building custom Wordpress themes.
Windows/Debian, Ubuntu on the laptop
Student of Computer Engineering
Job: Therapist, Social Services
how did you get your start/what resources did you take advantage of? I'm 20 and sharpening my web dev skills (and photoshop, eventually) I know a little java as well.
Age - 23
OS - OpenSUSE
Job - Line Cook (part time, I'm a student)
We're starting a slow conversion for many logs to get indexed into an ELK stack which is pretty sweet so far. Allows us analysts to actually find data we need.
We've had to split the McAfee ESM into 6 different stacks (bye bye "single pane of glass) just to get it to handle our 3+ billion (we're a huge conglomerate) weekly events.
The McAfee ESM has a (shitty) case management, but most incident response is done with a separate proprietary toolset and process our teams in-house developed (It's actually really fucking sweet).
Most ESM alarms from correlation rules we build end up with going down that separate incident response real anyway.
We're not using the product to it's full potential, but it's also garbage.
You do any incident response or just escalating? I was thinking about trying to get into incident response but I'm not sure if it pays that well. Almost like just desktop techs that just reimage or harden compromised hosts
Half my job is incident response, the other is building correlation rules. The third half is using all the tools combined to respond to government alerts since we fall under the Critical Infrastructure Protection compliance stuff.
For me incident response is finding malware in streams of data (tools we built), gathering forensics remotely (using tools we built) then analyzing the forensics to determine if it needs to be reimaged or not. If so, we just send the request to helpdesk and we're done. Some sys admin does the actual reimage.
I'm getting $100k for this all, so I wouldn't say the pay is bad. Though I am still a contractor waiting on an FTE slot
