    Hello and welcome!

    The CompTIA Security+ is a very good foundational exam on security theory. It is not a "hands-on" technical test, but rather an overview on encryption algorithms, access control, and other security "concepts". I would suggest you start there, and then move to the more technical vendor specific certifications such as those offered by Microsoft and Cisco. You have to be good at the ins and outs of these common products before you can begin to understand the vulnerabilities and best practices associated with them. Then you could move on to something specific to pen-testing like the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH).

    Good luck!
