The reason why I've actually joined is for a school assignment. I am attending college and we've been tasked with getting as involved with the security community as possible. So here I am!
Through school, I am working on getting my Cisco certifications, and so networking security is my primary focus. However any aspect of IT security is of interest to me.....not just for a good grade in my course, but also because I know how important it is. Plus, who knows what kind of job I'll get after graduating....it might not be my ideal networking job. :)
