He’s on a mission to help folks build successful careers in information security through his latest venture, AccessCyber.co.

Inspired by satire publications like The Onion, Gotham recently launched an infosec magazine called Brute Farce Attack, one of the many projects on his growing list of side hustles. In this episode of No Password Required, Gotham joins Carlton Fields’s Jack Clabby and KnowBe4’s Kayley Melton to share how his life changed after a well-intentioned anti-mentor inspired him.
