Has anyone ever left consulting for a 1 year contract gig at FAANG? Does contract work typically turn into a full-time role?

Experience as a contract worker is completely different than as an ft at FAANG

Over nothing yes, over what you currently have probably no.
Tech companies tend to extend contracts rather than convert to FT. So unless you are very confident you can convert it to full time or you plan to formally apply to a full time position and believe having the contract role on your resume will better position your application, it’s not worth it.

Not guaranteed. Only a very few % become FTs

I've been wanting to do something more technical lately (cloud computing/ethical hacking), but I'm not sure how to make the leap. The ISSO function entails a lot of paperwork, security enforcement, auditing, and reporting. I recognize the significance of the position, but to be honest, I find it tedious. Any tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
