I have to say, since the rise of Bug Bounties,
The self-proclaimed title of Security Researcher has gotten less and less popular
Here is something I realized years ago…
A little background, at this time, I had used some tools, I had used BackTrack and then Kali, I have monitored trends and current events in Cyber Security on the daily for years.
I realized, that I was already a security researcher.
I didn’t need someone to give me that “title.”
NEITHER DO YOU.
If you are meant to work within cyber security you don’t need someone else’s approval.
If you are interested in hacking and pen testing.
If you are actively learning as much as you can.
THEN YOU ARE A SECURITY RESEARCHER.
Now then, keep reading, keep researching, keep absorbing
and of course;
HACK THE PLANET.
P.S. if you NEED someone else’s approval, then here it is, i declare you, a security researcher.
Congratulations, don’t disappoint me now.
