System Admin Vs Network Admin Vs Security
So I have been looking at the various paths in IT here lately and there have been two major ones that stick out after entry level. First is the MCSA->MCSE route(systems admin), second is CCNA->CCNP route(network admin). For any of you that are in the industry, what are the differences of the day to day tasks of a net vs sys admin? Having very limited experience it is hard to differentiate between the two. Also, Security seems like a pretty big area in IT as well, however this path often involves network and system admin responsibilities as well. And other parts (such as forensics) has almost nothing to do with net and sys admin responsibilites. For you in security, how would you say your job is different than simple ol' net or sys admins? Just trying to separate these paths, seems to be much overlap. Thanks!
