Wow. Who could have predicted that thousands of companies starting to offshoring their internet security 16 years ago would end up being a national disaster? RollingEyesSmiley5

I have a neighbor whose son recently got a job in this area. Sounds like he is doing very well for himself!

Yeah, they'll pay the person whatever they want, but they won't upgrade their 30 year old IT infrastructure.

Hmm.. wonder if I can find an online degree or vocational program for that.

I'm getting a little tired of eating ramen and being expected to do the work of three people. If I'm going to do the work of three people, I'd like to get paid at least as well as ONE person.

I'd encourage it 1,000%

I'm very curious what the work is like. I'm a developer so I have a reasonable understanding for how computers work (or don't) but I haven't the faintest clue what its like to do security work beyond examining code for potentially exploitable patterns.

Paul F,

I agree with mattkime. Look for micro-credentialing and certificate programs from legit universities. Something that will force you to make significant contribution to a meaningful capstone project. Combine that with your work experience and get some good references. Go out of your comfort zone and make some more money. Serious, get your deeper inner geek on.

I am pretty sure you need 3.10 for Token Ring support.

Heh... I found a PhoneNet adapter last summer, on top of a cabinet in a classroom that had not been given a thorough "cleaning out" since we USED PhoneNet adapters! I considered keeping it just as a keepsake, but, I have lots of "keepsakes" in boxes...

PhoneNet is what the pioneers used for phone service in their covered wagons, right?

I feel your pain.
Unfortunately for me, I'm not smart enough for that stuff.

Not sure I am, either... but, even if I get the "low end" of those jobs, it'll be higher than I'm making now!
