... there is more thing to test and check in cloud env. that partner probably too out of touch with technical.

Unregistered So which company is a good place to learn and start my info security career
16-06-2022 08:24 PM
Unregistered All, I'm going to interview for a senior sec ops role. Basically defensive security. Vulnerability mgmt, incident response, managing IDS/IPS etc.

I have 5 years exp as a sysadmin doing incident response, troubleshooting, asset mgmt/security, and all the general infra/network IT stuff.

I also now have 1 year exp in sec ops doing incident response, writing SOPs, providing user trainings, and all the typical ops stuff (IDS/DAM/IAM/EDR/SIEM etc). Never did SOC though. Had vSOC for that.

I have Sec+ and Cysa+ but no CISSP yet.

Any idea what kind of salary I should be asking for? According to the recruiter, it apparently goes up to $9k but I doubt I have enough specialised security experience to ask for that.

Cissp need 5 yr of job exp to aquire and you properly wun be hired as a management directly as a fresh grad.

If you are talking about vendor management, I would advise you to avoid. Basically anything related to security you will throw it to the vendor, while you are doing the pmo job. Plus this role dun really need you to have much security exp, basically any ppl can do it mean that you can be ezily replaceable

Some of my friends stuck in that role cos they learn nothing and is very hard for them to exit.

Too many pentesters in the market. Nowadays, fresh grads from infosec degree are quite well-trained in school and can be fairly competent pentesters within a year. Can try look for opportunities at defenders side since you already have some experience (less "exciting" but also less competitive and very essential)
