I’ve been interested in cybersecurity for a while now and one day I’m hoping to transition into it. Between wanting to learn more about it before moving and wanting to build up other skills first, I’m thinking about sticking in my current spaces of software engineering and data science/machine learning before making the jump. From what I’ve read, software engineering (or more broadly coding) skills are useful for some roles. So I was wondering, are data science and machine learning skills useful for some types of roles as well? If so which ones?
Also if possible, if there is anyone with this type of background, could you share your story about your background and how it impacted your career in cybersecurity? Thanks!
