BONUS – Consuming VS Producing

My thoughts on consuming vs production and how it relates to Getting Into Infosec. Sometimes we get stuck learning, consuming security news, trends and etc… but we forget to produce something. Whether it be testing a new exploit we heard about, trying something new in our lab, or applying something we learned the day before. Finding the write balance is important. If we’re stuck, take little steps – better than no steps.
