Hi, I have been working in IT since 10 years now. This consists working experience as a hardware engineer, system administrator, application support, data center operations, virtualization, ITIL processes (Incident,problem and change management). As on certification part I have a VMware certification (VCP), ISO 27001:2013 LA, ITIL (Service Operations). I am looking for career into cloud security, information security. Received many suggestions like I should be doing penetration testing, AWS certification, vendor neutral cloud certifications etc. not sure where to start from. From the search, I have done on internet I understand there are 2 ways in this technical and non technical side (where my technical background will serve as added advantage) which I'm more interested in. I am more interested to know how can I present/utilize my technical and non technical experience and seek a career in cloud security. It would be helpful for me to get my confusion cleared and focus on right thing if you can suggest. Thanks and regards. Abhijeet

    This is a tricky question to answer because only you can get the experience and gain the knowledge to help you decide what you want to focus on. I would recommend checking out the Cloud Security Alliance (https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/) and what they're doing/offering to help further your insight into this topic. Best of luck!

    Have you ever contacted to a good consultant regarding your query. You have 10 years experience in IT / Computer related field. So it is not so hard to cope up with cloud security at least for you. But it is better to contact a good educational institute regarding this issue.
