I am Colin Edwards. I’m mostly a Systems/Network Admin, but I have a huge interest in Information Security and the majority of my daily work revolves around security in some way. I have several InfoSec certifications (CISSP, GMOB, GCIH, GCWN, GSEC), and I am always excited for an opportunity to learn, research, and share.

Ultimately, one of my goals for this page is for it to be a source of encouragement for people interested in a career in Info Sec or even IT in general. As years have gone by, and I’ve continued to learn more, I have found that this often quoted saying holds true: “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know” (usually attributed to Einstein, but I don’t have proof that it came from him, and I hate spreading misinformation). This has occasionally led me to feelings of “Poser Syndrome” or “Imposture Syndrome”, and I’ve heard those same feelings echoed by other folks that work in the Information Security space. In reality, even the most talented and brilliant minds in Info Sec are still learning new things every single day, and no one should ever feel discouraged by the feeling that they have a lot more to learn before they would consider themselves an “expert” of some kind.
