I am new to the forum. To get straight to the point, I am currently employed with a company that specializes in web application pen-testing. Thing is I am not in the department that actually engages in pen-testing, I am more of an account manager. If i stay in the position I am in, I imagine becoming more of a theorist rather a practioner at best. IF I choose to move over, I will no doubt take a salary cut(20%). What is the outlook on the career of soley being an application pen-tester(I actually plan on finally obtaining my ccna -->ccna security). Security interests me much more, and if money was not an issue I would do it in a heartbeat....What would you do? I would appreciate any advice and thank you in advance.
