Im an ISSO for a defense contractor. I learn a lot and get to work on the policy/GRC side of security. I had a brief technical background before this. The money is great, and I do enjoy the work, probably as I continue down this path Ill end up as an ISSM and maybe a CISO one day. By this summer ill have my mba, and CISSP, so my resume is pretty much set up and now Im just gaining experience. Now I want to kind of teach myself more technical side things, like I was thinking of diving into linux, python, bash, splunk, and maybe even start my path towards the OSCP. Could this benefit me (careerwise)? Like If i get decent at some technical aspects of cyber security on my own and pair that with my experience in the policy/audit/grc side, would that help qualify me for more senior cyber security engineer roles? I guess the money is so good at what im currently doing, i wouldn’t want to take a pay cut to try out the technical side, would my experience Im gaining now translate over well?
