I'm starting this thread just to try to get some opinions from any grey-beards out there, and to hopefully help out some of the folks trying to find their way in this crazy little infosec world.
Those of you who have already gone through a transisiton from technical to less so, how did you feel about it? Was it by choice, or was it forced upon you? Maybe it just happened naturally?
The reason I'm asking, is that I've found myself thrown in that direction. For a while now, my career has been taking a turn more and more to the less technical side of things. I've been dealing more with policy and procedure, with compliance, with C&A. And I'm good at it. Probably better at it than at most other things, honestly. I just didn't see this as the direction I'd be heading when I got into the infosec world. Suddenly, I'm a C&A consultant. Not a bad gig, don't get me wrong, but certainly not the sexiest
What say you EHNetters?
