Creating an infosec career from responsibilties
I have a job that is like being responsible for camera systems in a hotel chain with 500 locations. No degrees, certs, or infosec skills. Yet, I can create a partial infosec job based on new responsibilities. Feels like I have an option to start at the top, work my way down. If company goes under, it would be nice to be able to become an infosec consultant based on my responsibilities and skills developed at that job. I think I could carve out a personal brand in a niche industry. I have a lot of low-level skills from years in software development. The end goal would be to be a freelance/independent infosec consultant who worked in the niche industry for different companies. Has anyone created an infosec career this way?
