Sorry if this has been discussed already!
I’m looking for advice from people already in the industry: What is the best way to get the skills/ qualifications needed and also sought out by employers in the Cyber Security space? Should I simply enroll in an online platform like itpro.tv or Udemy and try to get some certifications like CompTIA, or would obtaining a degree in Cyber security be considered “necessary” to break in. I currently have a good paying job with a company I like and since I’m the sole income earner supporting my family, going in at the ground floor isn’t really an option for me, but that said my heart is in IT and specifically Cyber Security so if I can land a job in that field that pays at least as well, I’d take it in a heartbeat, but obviously I need the qualifications for this first.
Thanks for any help given. Just don’t want to throw time and money into something that won’t bring me closer to this long-term goal.
