It was soon clear that to get the most out of the course we needed to actively participate and be prepared to challenge ourselves with learning new tools, some scripting and adopting the mindset of an attacker.
By the end, we had nine lab environments in Azure and four VMs set up locally.
The two projects required use to bring aspects of different skills together and in the case of the major project, the time challenge (8 days) and scope of work involved was a serious challenge. Two vulnerable machines with capture the flags activities plus the requirement to document all steps, [vulnerabilities] and exploits for the Red Team report; then be a Blue teamer, set up monitors and alerts to protect the systems and document all the necessary actions to remediate the vulnerabilities found. The third part was a packet capture and analysis with Wireshark and an associated report. So we had three reports, plus an associated Github repo and a [presentation] to the class and instructors on the last day.
The Virtual Demo Day that followed a few weeks later was a chance to present a polished summary to Industry professionals. I made a good impression with a few of them and was soon contacted. I landed a new role as a Cyber Security Consultant!
Not only have I expanded my skillset, I have also grown in confidence immensely after this bootcamp. The job market did not turn out to be as bad as I thought it would be but my resume still got a competitive edge. So many companies have shown interest in my resume. I feel like my future is a little more secure now, job-wise.
