Hi, I have done my bachelors in computer applications and PG diploma in cyber security back in INDIA. I am working for cognizant technologies but not in the profile of network admin or anything related to networks as i had to take a job whatever came my way to run family but i am very much interested to get into information security. I moved to US recently and i sense that i want to change into network admin profile? what do you suggest? is it a right move? i am 26 yrs old. I don have relevant experience but used to worked as a technical support representative for 3 years before so i have the knowledge about networks, firewalls etc.

yes you can. if you want to sell yourself even more go and do certification as you already have technical knowledge, you are able to see / understand how things work easier.
