Interview with a Professional (and Legal) Burglar

Posted by Paul Constant on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 at 9:44 AM

This Reddit Ask Me Anything is pretty fascinating. Here's the introduction:

For work I get to break into hospitals and steal things. It's referred to as a "Physical Penetration Test." It's an integral part of a risk assessment, which is required under 164.308(a)(1) of HIPAA.

I routinely pick locks, steal access badges, impersonate medical personnel, harvest data and credentials, crack passwords, and utilize various social engineering tactics.

My official title is "Information Security Consultant." I have a degree in Information Systems Management, as well as; CCNA, Sec+, and CISA certifications.

Ask Me Anything!

It's easy to forget because we all have jobs, but few things are as interesting as a person talking about the things they do every day. And this job is an especially fascinating one. You should go read the whole interview thread.
