Hello!

 

So, my user name says it all, I am a 'longtimebeginner' in that I've been using computers all of my working life, but don't really understand them!  Following a change in my job spec, I need to increase my actual knowledge and so I thought a forum would be a good place to start and to get advice on things like courses I should look at doing!

 

Anyway, I look forward to interacting with people on this site, but please excuse any 'basic' questions . . .

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

Thanks Chris,

 

I'm going to spend the next few day going through tutorials and see what I can learn.  I'm primarily interested in information security and secure communication processes.

 

I'm currently investigating a CISSP course, which looks about doable for me... I think...
