Are there project management role within info sec (most interested in "offensive")? Not many posted and am wondering if there's a "natural" transition from my current role.

You don't see very many security specific project mgrs because project mgs exist to support large projects. Offensive hacking projects are small by their very nature most of the time and my guess is that their project mgr is probably shared with several projects or the pen tester manages themself. Either way. I would look at firms that do that type of work...which i think is not many due to the legal limbo nature of the work. John Strand just published a book on offensive security...id pick it up and read it to see if there are any hints on what types of firms do that type of work

Yes

The problem is, they are not very project manager focused so you don’t see many. They are a small macro in a large project. In most all cases they are loosely managed by a manager who is part of a project

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
