Mods, if this is not the right forum in which to post this question, please move it. But how did all the most helpful folk here get their HJT knowledge? Did you all go through the Tom Coyote Classroom stuff? If so, what is it like? How long does it take? Do you need to be an advanced user? Do you get tested? Can a computer security semi-noob sign on and pass? In other words: "What's it all about" I'd like to learn more about security and how to help others and that's why I ask the question. TIA!
