Zero to 1: Getting started with Cybersecurity


While the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step, that one step is often the hardest to take. Without a clear idea of where you’ll be going, it’s hard to know what the right first step is. Fear leads to inaction, inaction leads to stagnation, and you end before you’ve even begun. This presentation will be about how anyone can take that first step in their cybersecurity journey, and will include tips Pj used to go from knowing nothing at all about hacking to helping ProjectDiscovery Democratize Security, Together.
