Everyday Creativity

I had a long talk with an editor from Psychology Today magazine regarding trust and security and she spun part of it into an article she was doing on creative people who aren't artists or in artistic careers. I always say that the difference between machines and humans when it comes to hacking and pen testing is creativity. Here's the article that talks about this and while it's not about hackers, it starts with a little story I told about toy hacking. I just like it because I think it fits to what we do.

Prove to peers and potential employers without a doubt that you can actually do a proper penetration test. IACRB CPT and CEPT certs require a full practical examination in order to become certified.
