Beginner trying to get into the field

Hi Yall —

I’ve been looking into this career field and just want to make sure I know what I should study in order to be prepared for an entry level position as cybersecurity

Network+ > Security + > and Certification Ethical Hacking?

Is there anything else I should study or recommend?

Anything helps and I appreciate it!



Avoid the CEH. It’s a joke.

Only get it if (A) your employer specifically asks for it or (B) you want to impress your 14 year old nephew at the family BBQ.

It’s basically the security+ but shitty and four times as expensive.

Network+ and Security+ is a good starting point, you can definitely get entry level from those. Most companies are also going to ideally want a year or two of mid level IT experience on top of that, but not always.


Same here. I’m currently studying for security+ certification. I also built a home lab with some VMs to have some hands-on experience. Good luck
