I know the exact same questions are asked on here, with about every different prospective, and even though I don't post much I have read about all of them. I guess I am just honestly asking for personal recommendations.
I currently have a full time non computer job that allows me to pretty much control every aspect of my schedule, and can drop it down enough that I can transition over to another job.
So what I really want to do is contract pen testing. I have been using computers since I was a kid. Been involved in security about the entire time. I have ran my own computer company on the side specializing in network security, mostly doing vulnerability testing.
I realize that a lot of people want to see certs, so this last few months I did the Net+, Sec+, C|EH. I plan on doing the ECSA/LPT and the CISSP next. Really I am looking for how other have gotten there start in the field. Such as where do I find contracts? Does anyone have the LPT through EC-Council? What are others view of it.
Thanks for any input you guys have, I really do appreciate it.
