Howdy, my name is Chris Bishop! I'm a 4th-year Computer Science Student at Ryerson University with a passion for Cybersecurity and Machine Learning. Before finding my passion for Security, fun fact, I did a certificate in Firefighting and was head of sales for a small business called Clutch Sports Co. Over the past few years I have done internships with CIBC ranging from Web Dev to Cybersecurity, to a SWAT Consultant and Coach. During my time at CIBC, I have had the amazing opportunity to create work for and pitch my ideas to many executives including the CEO.
I feel very fortunate to have had the chance to work with so many amazing professionals across various domains. My goal is to take these experiences and give back through teaching what I have learned in the form of a blog called Diary of a Ninja.
Diary of a Ninja is a website I created to track my progress and all that I have learned in the Cybersecurity. My mission for Diary of a Ninja is to help make Cybersecurity more accessible for the average person.
