Re: Great Story!
This is how we can get to know that technology has evolved. Security risks have grown and thus needing security experts who are more proficient in the field. Back then, this isn't a major concern so the jobscope of such a personnel does not really entail that much. Today, everyone is afraid and is concerned about the security of their online activities and it is a market that needs professionals.

Great Story!
I had the privilege of working with Caleb when he was with Armorize, helping him to establish the company in the US. I learned a ton about security in a short time for sure. Great to be able to catch up on what he's doing. Good luck to him and the wife on the new venture.
