At this point the OSCP certification is not in the cards. The biggest item is the fact that I will not be performing any penetration tests in the near (3-5 years) future. The knowledge I had garnered from completing the lectures have definitely been beneficial. But without the plan of leaving my current position the certification isn't going to garner me anything.
So for now I am shelving it and will return to it if/when it becomes more beneficial to pursue it. My focus will be turning back to big data and development as to continue to support my unit's mission.
