Hello, and welcome to my website/blog. In case we haven’t met yet, my name is Bronwen Aker, I was an Internet professional for over 20 years and have experience in web design and development, technical training, and public speaking. These days, however, I work in cybersecurity. The transition started in late 2016 when I returned to college full-time to pursue a degree in cybersecurity.
In 2017 I applied for and was accepted into the SANS CyberTalent Immersion Academy for Women for 2017. Courtesy of that program, I now possess three GIAC certifications related to cybersecurity. After I give my brain a rest, I will tackle more certifications, but these are a pretty good start, IMO.
When I’m not studying my brains out, I also write, teach people how to use their computers, and take my fur-kid for walks in the wilderness.
Other minutiae includes the following:
- I’m a geek, and have been since long before it was cool.
- I’m a well-trained human, equally fond of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and other critters of various shapes and sizes.
- I like Star Wars and Star Trek.
- Of course Han shot first.
- The Answer is 42.
- Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.
- Scientific method can be applied to anything.
- There is no such thing as too many books.
