Re: Career Advice Please!!

Hello Kunal - Welcome to this forum!
I am also quite new here. I have spent almost a decade in IT and do find this forum extremely helpful!
Coming to your email...
First you need to be sure that InfoSec is your area of interest.
From your email I am not sure I understand what motivates you to think about pursuing a chain of certifications in security.
Can you please let us know what end result you are targeting?

Thanks!

OSCP = Best security course I've taken so far

OffSec recommends basic understanding of TCP/IP and Linux as pre-requisites. If you fit that bill, I'd say you should be good to start.
