    I’d wager most people do. But you certainly hear about all the people who spend their free time doin more cyberz. I am definitely guilty of this a lot of the time. But I’ve been working harder to disconnect more. Being a parent helps with this as it’s pretty mandatory.

    Don’t know if this counts for what you were looking for but bluetooth headphones are a game changer for me. Cleaning around the house, at the gym, on a run, etc… Very freeing compared to having the wire running into my pocket.




    • Security+ typically puts you on the map
    • CISSP is usually Sec+ level-up
    • Relevant (to the job you’re applying to) SANS course (expensive)
    • OSCP (for pentesting)
    • Any AWS cert is good if you’re applying to cloud roles

    But really, certs don’t move the needle the way they once did imo. You may be better off documenting your experience on a website rather than just having letters. This has at least been my perspective (and I have a TON of certs so I wish they were worth more)

    Almost certainly (though not impossible). Seriously doubt they went any deeper, i.e. rootkit, UEFI firmware / BIOS compromise, etc… There are likely files (pictures, documents) that your neighbor would not want to lose on their machine though so you should figure out how to get those off first.
