This time on TMHC Radio we have spend fantastic two hours with Amit Serper talking about how not to lose one's mind while working in infosec - specifically about ADHD. This episode really resonated with many of us - Amit really hit the mental health nail on the head.
And a bit about infosec too!

  • government -> Cybereason,
  • ADHD: Amit's journey to understanding what it really is,
  • ...and what are his method of coping with it,
  • technical: how to break into infosec? learn to program in C.

And a lot of interesting questions from the audience.
