Hi All,

need advice on switching career to cyber security career.

My background.
35 years old NTU mechanical engineer graduate
currently working in MNC for 10 years in procurement/sub-contracting

i have considered a few paths.
do provide your opinions.

1) carry on working in MNC and farm while taking up NUS part-time bachelor of technology (cyber security); can retain same salary

2) request to switch to sister company who manages a data centre to be network/system engineer (read from quora that it is good to have network/systems experience; can retain same salary

3) quit and take up ccna and be a junior network/systems engineer in a new company; have to take pay cut.

I'm a private diploma grad(Computer Forensics), taking a degree part time(also forensics). Currently hold CEH, and will be taking CCNA next month or so, then whacking certs here and there not for recognition, but just to boost my knowledge, such as PAN ACE, eJPT etc. Currently looking to enter the industry. What sort of pay sould I be looking at?

I'm having issues getting into the CSAT programmes, and also am not able to find entry level jobs who are willing to take no experience/degree. Maybe I'm not looking at the right places? I'm suspecting that I've been putting too high an amount on the 'expected salary'(hovering mid 2k ish), and possibly having a terribly unimpressive CV.
