Who moved my DNS cheese? BIND 9 DNS Log Collection and DNS Auditing

Looking into other cloud DNS infrastructure for a potential series. What provider do you use?

I spent the weekend going through Cybrary video lectures for the first time.

Tonight I did the 2 hour practice test in 40 min and bombed it, then the 3 hour practice test (complete in 1 hour) for the first time and got 65% right (70% is the pass rate for the exam).

New job going well on first week: rolled out a new system for the ISO27001 and TISAX certification, a handful of new policies worked on and participated in drafting and compiling materials for an important pitch, all in the space of four days.

Also helping with hiring someone to join the team!

Has anyone gone through the "working student" phase (it's a Germany thing, not sure about other countries) in IT security?

What items worked out for you in selecting a role to apply for? Any tips or ideas during your time at a company?

To give an idea: I haven't gone through this ever as I only study FT, did work about a year before moving to more sec focused work.

I should probably mention that in line with the new job, I will also be sitting in 2-3 certification exams this year also.

What's your plan for the next 8 months?

Fedimind: Resources to learn more about German Mittelstand (most notable around IT-sicherheit, datenschutz, etc)

Chris Brenton from Active Countermeasures is conducting another free, one-day, Cyber Threat Hunting Training online course

In this free, one-day (6-hours) course, we will cover how to leverage network and host data to perform a cyber threat hunt.

The focus will be on processes and techniques that can be used to protect:
- Desktops
- Servers
- Network gear
- IIoT
- BYOD system

Maybe @fallenhitokiri and @galaxis knows (trying to gauge how do-able it is, or if it's something that can be covered if I have OK German skills and would need a translator for the longer German sentences...).

Quick question: If you are working with an org for certification process (ISO 27001, TISAX und TPN) would it be a disadvantage to the org to get it done as an English speaker (aka what is the req you need native German skills).
Ex, ISACA Germany Chapter e.V. is implementation guidelines in English
