Anybody go from cyber consulting (assessment based/cyber maturity/incident response plan) to a more technical role? I really want to make this move but not sure if it’s possible without cutting my salary down significantly. Currently building up my skills in networking and VM so I have a path built to improve my skills. Just worried about finding a technical role when all my experience is self taught and home lab based.

Did it last year without a pay cut moving from a KPMG cyber manager to a Slalom SC. Been up skilling the last year in Terraform, pipeline development, and DevSecOps.

Part of the problem (I'm assuming based on experience) is that you're in an accounting firm with advisory. None of them really have a career path for technical work outside of Deloitte.

I’ve left a big 4 to a pure play cyber advisory and mssp. I had a good base foundation at b4 but transfer was problematic so I left for my new role now. I am also thinking to leverage my experience in IT audit + new experience in providing actual security assessments (seeing how other companies have done things) and to try to leverage that for dev devops role. Sound feasible to you? Would
Love to chat with you more.
