Breastfeeding on a zoom call. Yay or nay? Was awkward in the call today. With webcam on. No one said anything but can tell from the faces the bewilderment. 5 people call. 3 women and 2 men. Kept up to point and wrapped the call quickly. I am one of the males btw.

Generally curious how many companies offer phone reimbursement? My last gig did not but the current one does. Legally it seems, all employers are required to do so if we use our phone in literally any capacity (video call, slack, teams, emails etc). How prevalent is the issue of not reimbursing phone dues?

I secretly despise my child’s teacher. Conferences to be held get canceled on snow days citing they’re closed. Except, how did they do their work from home? It was a scheduled zoom meeting. My child has some troubles and needs behavioral health interventions and I’m still working today despite my agency being closed. Such dedication from this teacher in ensuring they have their needs met. Isn’t the first time either.

Two weekends ago, I stupidly left my work phone in another part of the state. As required, I reported it as soon as I noticed it was missing. Luckily I only use my work phone to occasionally check my email while on the go and dial into zoom meetings, so nothing sensitive was compromised. My old phone was superhero blue. The replacement is Barbie pink. I guess that’s punishment enough, especially being a big 6’4 man 😂.

To hiring managers, why is networking such a big deal in this day and age? Do you find that candidates who do zoom chats with 3 employees and get referrals are much stronger than those who just submit applications?
(Note: I mean this sort of shallow networking as distinct from having worked closely with someone on the team. I understand why that referral carries weight)

When i got into cyber security i was extremely enthusiastic about it. I was fascinated by how a simple string on hexadecimal values can give you remote access to any machine, so i learned many things like exploits development, reverse engineering and malware analysis. During my tenure of 6 years i used IDA just once.

In my opinion Indian cyber security, especially SOC is just like another job, we don't have a creative culture in cybersec domain. That's heart breaking.....
