“I Know Every Thing” – The Cyber Security Pitfall.
Chances are (especially in this field of Cyber Security) you’ve worked with someone who claims to know it all. And you’ve probably quickly noticed that they don’t. Ugh, I see it all of the time. I’ve worked alongside plenty of these “Know it all” types, and the fact is, they only knew what they read in a book to pass their certification test. If I had to guess as to why they act this way, it’s because of self doubt and inferiority complexes. If they could just get past that and humble up, they’d probably be fine.
It’s impossible to know everything, regardless of the Career. The so-called “Gurus” don’t even know it all. In the field of Cyber Security, this is especially true. Cyber Security, on both of the offensive and defensive side, changes so rapidly that it’s virtually impossible to know everything. Heck, you’ll never catch me saying that I am a “guru” or “Know it all” because I’m not, and I don’t. There is always something new to learn in this rapidly changing career. The sooner you realize that, the better off you will be.
