I was wondering if you would kindly help me. My name is Darren and I'm from the UK. I've just turned 17 and I am due to start the Zenos IT academy where I will be working towards a diploma to become a Microsoft Certified System Administrator along with an NVQ level 3.
I'm excited but I would like to go further and I have absolutely no clue what to become or what to study. I was hoping you could perhaps help me with this.
My dream job would be to monitor systems and networks to stop people from breaking in/breaching (as many forms of hackers, too). How to trace an intruder. Also to monitor and stop people in the early stages of an infiltration and learning how to make a network as secure as possible.
Can anyone tell me the best job for me? Also the best path of qualifications that would help me reach this goal?
How in demand will I be in the next few years upon completing this and what is the average pay when I am qualified?
