Getting started in Anti-Virus professional community
Posted on 2004-08-20
If at some point in my career I wanted to work in "security"....how would I get started? I have always been curious not about writing viruses so much as the people who find them and quarantine them. How is it done? That kind of thing.
I am guessing to catch and kill a virus you have to know how they work...maybe even know how to write one? Sorry, I am showing my naivete here. :)
For example...if I wanted to help a company detect and protect against viruses....from a software development perspective....how would I get started? I have no experience in such concepts.
What would be an "entry level" position at such a company?
What skills would a candidate be expected to have?
What if you have no experience in the field but want to break into it?
