I always thought it was pretty trivial to make 100k in IT based on what I read here and on reddit.(high cost of living tech hub). But I've read some salary threads here and I am getting some mixed opinions. Some people claim it takes 10 years experience in a specialty before breaking six figures. I was just wondering if someone with a BS + cissp and 3 years experience in a security role really wouldn't be at 100k in a hcol tech hub?
