Long time developer looking to move into security space

Hello - I'm a long time Developer (~20 years) - mostly web applications and a lot of database work.

As a developer of public faces web apps I've always had an interest in security - but my interests are broad from penetration testing to incident response (read a few books in this realm).

Since I currently have one of those dead-end, slow jobs with a bit of free time I decided to start learning something new. I completed the Security+ exam in 2016 and the CISSP last week.

As a developer looking to move into the security space, can you make suggestions for additional education and/or finding a job? I see plenty of security audit positions but few which leverage both development skills and the security realm.

On my job hunts over the years it has been quite easy to find jobs as the demand is high, but I am at a loss on how to transition into another area. Most recruiters call me for .Net related positions but when I bring up security I might as well be speaking Greek.
