From works at Booz Allen Hamilton 1:

I think the cert gives a good overview of cloud concepts and helps you understand what tech folks are talking about when they say things like "S3 bucket". To employers it only shows that you're familiar with the cloud but doesn't give any indication of expertise... Jump to comment

Wonder if anyone can offer advice on which cert to pursue next? I obtained my CompTIA Security+ last year and wondering if I should go for the CySA+ or Pentest+ next. I also have my AWS CCP and will be sitting for the Solutions Architect soon as well. Currently not doing security stuff at work but would love to keep my skills going. I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.

Really want to exit consulting, but all I have experience in is making PowerPoint slides for our cloud practice… Where should I look to apply? I don’t actually have any tech skills (besides the aws ccp) but I really want to leave consulting for something with better wlb.

AWS-SAA question (newbie): I know AWS account is a root account & by default gives user access/permissions to all the AWS services.

So....when the IAM users are added, do they receive a notification with the url to access the environment? Do they need an aws account as well? Confused on difference
