I saw my definition of a worst case scenario today, all because the client didn't want to spend a little bit of money a couple years ago.

    I think your best bet to start today is to start looking at self-education options (all over youtube, reddit, google) and start shopping for jobs that either have big training budgets or are at a service provider/vendor that offers IR and try to move laterally within it. You'd be surprised by what you get from just shooting your shot. You could consider some really basic certs like Sec + (avoid CEH like the plague unless you're gov't.) or Blue Team Level 1. I like to watch guys like 13cubed, or the surviving digital forensics podcasts and courses. Also just stay aware of infosec news from sources like brian krebs or cyberwire daily. Some other things to think about are ashemery.com/dfir.html and https://github.com/stuxnet999/MemLabs for some good exercises. Don't feel bad for using walkthroughs your first few times. SANS 3 minutes max is also great for quick topics in DFIR
