What would be better move to continue getting good technical exp but also move up over 3-4 years before going to steady industry role towards security architecture? Currently new M in big4 cyber trying to figure out next step. Go to another big4? MBB? Cyber focused company? FAANG?

Let's break this down into three groups. Mbb - big 4 - faang. Let's also assume you want to stay in security

Mbb is not about tech - it's really about identifying how you can improve a security orgs output. The evidence you need to create is more akin to an operations improvement project than the traditional nist based assessments that other orgs use.

Big 4 - you are there so you know what they do.

Faang security is about technical engineering. Even for the cloud security consultant positions.

If you want to go faang you will need to go somewhere that builds cloud environments hands on.

If you want mbb - an advanced degree is super helpful.

Big 4 - you know the deal.

Let me know if you have questions.

Little late to this, but we have an entire practice whos job is building AWS/Azure/GCP environments for clients, seems like a great resume builder

Commenting to follow the commentary on this.

SA1 currently trying to think a few steps ahead for my career and where I should realistically look for exits and what the timing on that should be.

Also commenting to follow along

.

So if industry is your goal I’d say a couple of things - cyber is going to continue to move towards MDR/sourcing - so finding and managing partners/responses and able to articulate risk instead of pure security.

But CIOs still tend to look for “grey hair” for these positions so a few more years never hurts.

I take offense to"gray hair"....my beautiful but balding hair is still it's original color

That being said..it's all about experience. What are you doing in consulting? If it's just assessments and light tech stuff ...only 1 year is enough. After that you are wasting your time

Look for quality of quantity
