I received a job offer a few days ago for a job as a junior consultant for incident response and digital forensics at one of the Big4. So far, most of my experience is in application development from internships or working student jobs, but I'm about to finish my masters degree in a month. I've always been very interested in IT security topics and the interview went great – people were very nice and the projects sounded fun. Now I'm wondering: Is that job a good starting point for IT security and will I be able to do the job without any practical experience? Does anybody have some insights how such a career could go in the future?
