Career Advice Needed - Switching Roles

By bkindle ·
I was apporoaced this morning about future changes in my IT department. I was asked about a certification I had and if I would be willing to change roles and take a newly created role that would deal with specifics, with my current role becomming a backup to the spot I would be moved away from.

The new position would be dealing more with security and network infrastructure. I have a Security+ certification which is small beans compared to what this position normally would require, but the environment I work in is small and growing. I was asked to do some research about what kind of training I would like to have and help come up with a new job description for this role.

Right now I assist a loss prevention manager with full time IT support of video surviellance systems and this was also another reason given to me for creating this new role in our IT department. My IT Director wants to expand my repsonsibilities to security for our technology infrastructure as well.

I would like to discuss this with any veterans out there in the IT security field and get some advice and pointers on how I should proceed as this is going to be the biggest promotion I have had to date in my career.
