Anyone have any idea how much can a security analyst with 4years experience command with the below cert?


1) GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH)
2) NICF- ITILŪ Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management



Certs don't matter that much. It's what you've done that mainly matters. So what have you done?

I agree, beside your experience, depends on the role you took up. The job with higher responsibilities such as customer facing or require long/odd hours will command more pay.

There are lots of people are looking to earn high salary package but and they don't even focus to their aims goals objective and success. They just wanted to be a billionaires. I hope you are not one of them. Be a good achiever and earn big.

Swift hacker. Provided you can cover your tracks. Transfer 1bn to yourself. Now is still not too late while banks and FIs are still remediating their systems and tightening their controls.

GCIH and ITIL are 2 totally different domains. GCIH teaches on Security Incident response (NIST 61) IR Framework . Preparation, Identification, Containment, Eradication, Recovery and Lessons Learned.

ITIL teaches on Incident/Problem management.

Just because both involves the word "Incident" Doesnt mean they are the same.

Sorry to burst your bubble. In this industry, Certs and Experience goes hand in hand. Do you think customers will trust you if you proclaim to have vast experiences with no certs to prove.

Also long/odd hours aka shift gets more pay to compensate for your sacrifice eg night shift. Does nt mean you are better or have more experiences. You may jolly well get a pay cut if you switch to a normal timing job.

Need to get acquainted with underground people/economy first. Definitely not a single person's job. Any contacts for recommendation? Need some people to be money mules too.
