1) How to prepare for interview for FAANG security engineer? Leetcode questions?
2) What certs do you have?
3) What kind of security engineer (Pentest, Infra, SRE, devops, SOC/IR) ?

If you ask me to calculate encryption by hand I can do it. If you ask me about evasion techniques, I can demonstrate it. If you ask me about defense and how to tighten policies, I can do it too. I also code in python building automation in the cloud for incident response.

I consider myself above average in big tech. There's a lot more smarter people in faang who knows significantly more and deeper than I do. In terms of interviews if you're keen, yeah, I test candidates across multiple domains for breath and depth. From ha, Dr, coding, memory management, strategic, security compliance, Linux, cluster management, kubernetes etc. Normally we need the candidates to hit at least 75% of the questions, if not, we can't hire. as the work we do impact millions with every change or publication.
Ty! Self development wise, what advice would you give to somebody doing security ops?

Question what about sscp?

I've read through all the threads and realized no one mentioned SSCP as a cyber security personnel.

Want to go into path of doing day 2 security analyst(i think?) that does pro-active(prevention) checks on threats/attack, which roles are more suitable as I've checked across CareerSG, JS, LinkedIn but found almost none similar to this.

Any legit recommendations is appreciated.
TGIF peeps
