Doing CISSP half way now, and will be taking MSc of Cyber Security later this year (Already accepted from Uni).

Have cehv11, some unix cert, etc.

Worth to take up this? as i see the pay range is quite low at 4-5k only or are there been offer higher? Or should i just get the master degree will be a better route?

Path i currently looking at is
If i continue with master degree on my own:
Internal posting to security department in same company and do part-time lecturer in private school and perhaps eventually become a full time lecturer in private sch till retirement.

Or try apply for this and work in gov sector till retirement.
4.5k is really low for someone of your profile who has 15 years exp. Stick with pte sector instead.

imo, it is better to continue ur private industry path...there is more to gain since you are already familiar with your current company.

Can't gain much exposure by posting to other govt agencies. Best is can post to private sector companies.

I recall during a sharing session that there are also other trainings like FireEye included at the end of the programme. I think not a bad deal to get into the field.

btw, I graduated from NUS Engineering..
why not GovTech if you want to do cyber?
