I am interested in finding out the ways how can I intrude and bypass targets, learning how other guys find and exploit vulnerabilities and solving challenges. These mindsets make me become a Cyber Security Analyst.
3) Please share how you achieved OSCP certification / any recent certification if any.
In a student life, I thought that I should challenge myself to work as Cyber Security penetration tester after student life. I found out that OSCP is one of the recommended industrial certificates among security professionals and the best entry-level certificate for penetration testing field. So, I decided to take OSCP to get an eligible place. But at this time, I confused about how to start and lost my ways. But fortunately, I got a contact with Ko Ethan from Ko Myat Thu. He guided how to learn and show the ways how to achieve OSCP. I tried a lot and passed OSCP at the end of 2017. And in 2019, I achieved CRT.
