I'm thinking of making a switch from being an MS SQL DBA to IT Security Operations. Is this a good move to make?
Nivin 32 weeks ago
I'm currently a SQL DBA and SAP BusinessObjects Admin. I'm being offered a role in IT Security Operations. Is this a wise move? What are my options once I make the switch? Where will I find myself 3 years down the road?
I'm leaning towards making the move since I can move out of an operational role and get into something more specialized. Something which will offer me more later. I do not see myself as a Senior DBA 5 years later. Does any of this make sense??
