I have been involved in the IT career path for about 6 years now. I have worked my way up from a helpdesk agent to my current position as a systems admin.
Lately I have felt mired... or stagnant in this track and I am looking to test new waters. Security has always been an interest and I am hoping to explore that field futher.
Can anyone assist with where to best get started, (Books, training materials, classes, networking, etc...) with the pursuit of this segment of the IT industry. Which certs are most accepted? Is it better to be vendor specific or non specific? I really dont know where to start. I have basic security knowledge ( VPN, IPsec, L2TP, PPTP, NTFS, GPO, yadd yadda..)
Thanks in advance for your assistance. I look forward to all of your replies.
