Hi, I'm currently working for an IT consultancy company (2 years experience as a system tester) and would like to change my career direction to information security. I have few doubts and I therefore need a bit of advice:
1/ I would like to study toward a professional qualification and I have an idea of which one I would study for (CompTIA Security+), but can anyone tell me which qualification is the most recognised and the best?
2/ Does anyone know some companies who are looking for some junior security analysts in the London area (or even in the UK)?
3/ I am aware of few companies (Syntegra, Quinetiq, Detica) who seem to be quite good in the field of IT security. Anyone know who the leader/best companies are for a career in IT security?
I would be grateful for any advice anyone has to offer. Thanks.
