Cyber field saturated? I'm an analytics consultant who has worked at pwc and Deloitte but have always been interested in cyber too. Am thinking about trying to switch into the field but am worried.

Really depends on your level and experience. There is a huge talent gap and talented ppl are in high demand. If u want to break in, based on what you listed, I’d recommend a SOC Analyst role. Can be hard to get into, can’t be picky about the first job, but once you do a 1-2 years in a role, you can move to what you want. That’s what I’ve seen at least.

Specifically about it being saturated / hard to get into. I already use tools like splunk, elasticsearch, nmap just for fun and in analytics.

I'm worried I would have to take a huge step back and pay cut. (Sorry if it's a dumb question)

Want to move to the MENA region? We are desperate for cyber talent here.

BA1, I'm interested, countries, fields and salary? 3 years in cyber security and data protection plus 4 in IT

@Accenture1 - are you interested in M&A consulting? US-based though...

Why would u want to go to middle East ...

Thanks everyone for responding. Sounds like there is a lot of need in general

A1, what specific skills?

BA1 isms, iso27k1, security strategy, security compliance, GDPR compliance, security and data protection audits

Hello everyone, I am currently 9 months into my first job after graduating with a BCom. I am currently working at KPMG and working towards my CPA. Only issue is I hate it have very little interest in accounting. I have seriously been considering pivoting towards a career in data and analytics by perusing a masters in data analytics or data science. Most people around me strongly encourage me to finish my CPA but I feel like it will add little to no value to a career in analytics. Thoughts?
