It has been a while since I have posted as I have been busy with IRL.
I was wondering if you enigmatic people would be able to help me with something.
So long story short. I currently work in the field of healthcare. I have been doing it for 4 years post military. I have come to realise that this is not the career for me.
Now I have always been interested in security / pen-testing (Physical/software/infrastructure). However I have no formal education in this and I would probably be the first to admit that I have got lucky and brute forced a few old routers for the wifi password all my own hardware but still.
I have been told that a good place to start is obtaining CompTia Securty+ certification. I would like to slowly migrate to security consultancy however I am bare bones no clue where to start.
Do you guys think you could point me in the right direction?
Also I have noticed for many IT jobs you need to have experience to start. How do people obtain the first 3-5 years experience?
