Sounds like a great opportunity. It’s not as if things can get worse, right? There will probably be plenty of work to do, and getting the pointy-headed-bosses to stump up some budget isn’t going to be that tricky I imagine.

According to The Register, Colonial Pipeline started looking to fill the position at least a month before the DarkSide gang’s ransomware attack resulted in it shutting down its systems.

Good luck to everyone in an IT role, defending against criminal hackers. It’s not an easy job, but it’s an important one.
