It could be difficult for you to get into HR directly from Security. Rather you try for Admin Manager job. You may continue in Admin or then further progress into HR.
I had encouraged security officer who was reporting to me to get into Admin. After spending about five years in Admin, he became so confident that he has started his own facility management company.
In fact Admin is not that bad either. If you learn purchase management, contract negotiations etc, you may become admin head of some big company and your earning may go up to 20 to 30 Lakh per annum also.
All the best!

Thanks for the advise. I too do not feel bad about Admin. Can you tell me how did you guide your security officer to get into admin so that i can also find my path.

To groom yourself to the managerial position, attend training courses that happen on managerial competencies, career planning etc. Secondly, start applying for the position of Asst Admin manager etc. You will come to know intricacies of the job when you get into it. To succeed in admin, records management is something quite important.
People at many level do not plan their career. Recently, I had conducted public workshop for secretaries titled "Secretaryship to Managership". I had given insight to the secretaries how to grow to in their career and not to slog as secretary throughout their life. They were more than happy.
You can click here to know about that past workshop. Connect with me on the Linkedin and I will intimate you as and when workshop of this kind happens in or around your city.
