Your Infosec Supply List

Bre Schumacher //

As I was walking through the back to school display at the store the other day, I picked up a handy-dandy school supply list. Of course there were all the usual things: scissors, glue, notebooks, etc. but it made me wonder what would be on the “supply list” for someone just starting out in the infosec field. So I asked one of our testers, Jordan, to help create such a list!

For those of you who are starting a new chapter venturing into information security, here is your unofficial “official supply list.” And for anyone who’s been around this stuff for a while, what else would you add to this list? Make sure to tweet us (https://twitter.com/bhinfosecurity?lang=en )your suggestions! Please note that some of these may seem like they lean more to the “red team” or “blue team” side, but we believe they can be useful in both situations. Not sure how? Feel free to contact us to ask more questions.
