Sys Admin to Remote Security Role

Hey everyone!

I’ve been a system Admin for about 15 years now and would like to transition to the cyber security field since that’s always been my passion while doing sys Admin work. I have my Sec+ (from 2009…so very old, but technically still valid because it was before the CE reqs lol (I know the gov’t sector wouldn’t accept it without CEs)) I’ve always had a security mindset and am familiar with many of the principles, but do you think I need more prep before applying for jobs, or can I OJT it? (I don’t want to do any red team type stuff)

What types of roles could I expect to take? Anyone doing this fully remote now?

Any advice is greatly appreciated for this sort of transition!
