Path to network security engineer
Looking for tips from anyone in the network security field. What kind of job experience do I need to lead into a network security engineer role. What are the best certifications to help educate and qualify me for it. Right now I'm a desktop support manager, and assist network engineers in various small tasks. I have a pretty solid grasp of basic network support skills. I'm at a point where I could go into more of a manager role, or into more of a technical role, and would like to know which will be more adventageous to a career in network security. Thanks in advance.
