Started with big 4, now at BDO.. work in IT audit (have had very successful fast tracked career in IT audit) and at Manager rank. Interested in moving over more-so to cyber security type consulting and escaping the IT audit prison (aren’t we all lol). Any advice on education / certificate requirements on how to transition more-so into cyber type space?

On a separate note… how is BDO compared to working at B4? Recruiter reached out for advisory business transformation type role at a SM level.

Similar work, but less structure, less internal processes and more resource constraints with smaller teams. I made a decent pay jump and doing essentially the same work, so no complaints on my side

Okta and CyberArk are pretty hot products right now. You might consider PCI and GDPR compliance

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?
