Greetings and welcome to my blog – Francis’s Microsdose.
My name is Francis (go figure) and I am cyber security engineer in the Defense Industry. I’ve been in this field for nine years and counting.
I hold B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, US Naval Academy, M.S. in Cyber Security Engineering, University of San Diego. I’m currently pursuing my B.S. Computer Science from Oregon State University (one class remaining) and M.S. Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology (eight classes remaining). I should be complete with my B.S. by spring of 2022.
I also hold numerous Cyber Security Certifications – CISSP, GCIH, GPEN, GWAPT, GXPN, and OSCP (I’m most proud of this one). I’m currently pursuing Offensive Security’s Advance Web Application and Exploitation Certification and hoping to ultimately my Offensive Security Certified Expert Certifications
I started out this blog to: share advice on how to make it in the Cybersecurity field; document and share tutorials of my past, present, and future penetration testing challenges; and just share my thoughts on anything cybersecurity related.
I hope your ass passionate about cybersecurity as I am and that this site proves to be a useful resource.
