Recently, I've been wanting to start a career in Information Security and I've been having an issue getting my foot in the door. I have Security+ and I am thinking that maybe getting CASP certification will help in someone giving me a security analyst position or some other entry level position to get my foot in the door. I currently work as an IT technician with little hands-on security because I work for a smaller company.
I've read the objectives for CASP and it says that it is targeted for people with 10 years of experience in IT and at least 5 years of hands-on technical experience. Which I don't have of either. Essentially all the additional experience has been using NullByte and creating my own lab testing at home.
Even if I pass the test, would it even benefit me? Should I even bother spending my energy on this? Any guidance is appreciated.
