What pay should I ask for?

Hey all,

I have an opportunity at work moving from Help Desk to Jr Sec Analyst.

I have about 4 years in IT but have been doing security related stuff for about 2. In school still and have about a year and a half left before I get the degree (in Cyber Sec). Also have Sec+ and taking OSCP soon. I’m not too bad at this stuff but obviously still entry level.

The shop is small so I’d be the only analyst directly under Director, who is a CISSP with lots of experience. I already manage our AV, do analysis on malware, handle SIEM response and new integrations. I also do all terminations and managing AD. Basically I do a lot of the job already.

Currently at $52k/yr. When I move I expect more but what should I put in my mind as a number?
