Hello all,

I want to get some certifications and get my base strong before i get into the pen testing and auditing area. Please advice on what certifications i should be acquire. I have my Masters in Telecommunications and CCNA R&S. I am currently working as a Security Analyst (GRC & Questionnaires).

My final aim is to go into Pen-testing and Auditing. What should be my next certification goal to take steps closer towards my aim?

I want to get these certifications because I want to shift to a different company.

    It's kinda hard to give a decent suggestion without knowing more about your background.

    As far as pen testing certs go, you could look into either the eJPT or OSCP. I would recommend the OSCP over eJPT but that's just my personal opinion.
    I'm not allowed to say what my previous occupation was, but let's just say it rhymes with architect.

    If you don't have any experience in penetration testing, it's probably not a good idea to start with OSCP. Ultimately, OSCP is where you want to end up, but it's a good idea to build up to it.

    Start with and get comfortable with the basics. Security+ is decent to get your feet wet.
