The Free and Affordable Training Sites Have Merged!

I had a week of PTO and since I have no idea how to just relax and chill, I took a much-needed break from social media and emails and created a new site combining the old Free Training Site and Affordable Training Site into one. In the process, I fixed broken links, updated prices that changed, and added social media profiles associated with the training. There is nothing over $1,000 (base price). The new site provides a better way to search. You can search everything at once, search only the free training, or search only a specific category. You can...

The Get Your Start in DFIR Scholarship Site Just Launched!

Last year I announced that I had two more websites planned after creating the Free Training and Affordable Training sites. The first one, Get Your Start Careers, a US & Canada job board for entry level jobs in DFIR, Cybersecurity, Intelligence and Tech launched in May. I also planned on creating a scholarship site to help others get into the field because I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the training and certification scholarships I received in the past. I experimented with different funding options but none of them worked out. Then Josh Mason, who started...

I Participated in a Trace Labs CTF – Now I’m Hooked on OSINT

When I decided to create a blog last year to document my journey as a DFIR newbie and share resources, I made a Twitter account to go along with it. I didn’t know about “Infosec Twitter” or how many DFIR people were on there, but I found out rather quickly. It was like a whole new world had opened up! A few months later, in April of 2020, I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and saw something about a Trace Labs OSINT CTF. I had no idea what Trace Labs was, and really didn’t know much about OSINT but...
