7MS #298: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Crying - Part 2

Below are show notes for an episode of the 7 Minute Security podcast, a weekly podcast I publish that focuses on topics such as penetration testing, network configuration, blue-teaming and career advice. I welcome you to subscribe in your favorite podcast app so you don't miss an episode!


Last week I talked about how business has been going with the LLC. Today I answer some additional questions that I didn't have time to address:

  • How I'm finding leads/projects to work on (TLDR: I'm NOT sending 1TB of PDFs to people, spamming them, calling them endlessly or LinkedIn'ing everybody and their mom)

  • The interesting conversations I'm having with customers who seem a little tired of the traditional pentest/assessment song and dance (spoiler alert: they're looking for people with solutions and who will actually help remediate the stuff in the report!)

  • The training services I'm offering are getting a lot more interest than I expected - and I think that's due to some of the sessions being more technical, yet not as intense as, say, a SANS course or the OSCP.
