    It's not for everyone, I think you need the right sort of mentality for it. I manage the cybersec for a division in a large company with about 50 development teams, each with a developer who has the role of "Security Advisor". A small minority enjoy the work and actively pursue it as an interest (e.g. study for CEH), others drop out as they realise they have no interest. I'd recommend having a look at the OWASP site, maybe look at the cheatsheets to give you an idea of what it involves:
