As I have pondered it, my studies will continue.
I have too much invested to stop my cyber-security career just because my new team does not utilize it much. I am drawn to the field so it is best to follow that attraction to see where it will take me. My sample tests are showing that I am on the verge of readiness to sit for the Security+ exam. I hope to be able to complete the cert before leaving for Vegas next month.
My new team is nicely inclusive. They are still learning who I am and all that comes with that. With any luck, they will enjoy all that Griz has grown to be.
