GRC Consultant studying AWS. What doors or roles this could open for me in the future?
I am currently a GRC consultant and have an opportunity to pursue AWS certifications through free training provided by a company partnership with a training vendor. I have some downtime, so I figured I'd study for the AWS Solutions Architect Associate and Professional certifications. Plus work pays for any relevant cert I choose to get under $500, since it can look good on proposals.
Besides simply growing my cloud knowledge, I am curious as to what benefits or advantages this certification might bring me. I know having this knowledge (especially in AWS) will be beneficial to my GRC work, but I am interested in how they may be helpful in the long-term and if these certification may open up different avenues in the future, that I should look into (thinking 1-2 yrs out).
For Context: My work as a GRC consultant covers a wide range of things like: risk assessments, business continuity planning, program development, audits, etc. I also have a secondary background in cyber threat intel. I am CISSP and CISA, too if that matters at all.
