ISC2 SSCP Exam Tips

I passed SSCP certification exam from ISC2 recently. The post is to share preparation tips and reasons to take this exam. There is not a lot of posts on Internet about SSCP prep since it’s not quite a popular exam and I hope this article helps people who decided to take SSCP. Why SSCP The first thing is to understand SSCP exams and its nature. IMO, it’s entry-mid level exam with focusing to examine technical/administrative thinking for security practitioners. It’s also a very good starter exam for those who can’t obtain CISSP due to lack of working experience or knowledge. I decided to ta...

Pebble EOL and alternatives

I am writing this after a year using Pebble Time. I bought it the day I heard company is gone but still it's going this far. I shout out to pebble team and a bit to Fitbit for making it happen. Pebble server will down at 30th June 2018. Features that requires online services will be lost for pebbler. Some can live with that but most people might not satisfy with partial malfunction devices. Fibit offering all pebble users $50 discount for Fibit Ionic. It is a budget choice for a good smartwatch but what are the alternatives out there?

Ransomware preventive measures

AV is not enough protection for the new era of cyber attack paradigm Recently, I’ve been using more than AV for my work PC to tighten the security.

Things 21st Century Modern Minimalist own

A question of “what to possess and why I have them?” Women buy things they fancy. The same applies to men. Men even fall into the category of buying things that are useless and not make life more organizing and productive. I am the kind of guy beat myself up when I end up owning some stupid things. I believe in minimalism and the concept of “buying less” and live simply. It makes my life easy and declutter without chaos in your room. I only buy things I really need, I find it elegant and beauty in it. This is more of a personal note of why I own and planning to buy. Of course, I have more...

Another Pebble Watch Story

I heard the news that Fitbit is buying some assets of Pebble and I read a post that says something like “it’s a time to buy one if u want it”.

Now, I am capable of having one easily from local reseller and just a thought of “why I should not own one now?”. I ordered it from e-commerence site and it arrives the exact day the company shuts down. I was ...

He is working on a piece about technolgy changes and impact on Burmese citizen or similar topic. I took this as a change to write my personal story of what I went through and how I expose to technology and working as a career in IT. I wrote it on a limited time due to my busy schedule lately. It’s more like a drafting and bear with it. I recommend to start with the Quora answer and go on the questions. Firs...
