I’m currently an information security analyst with 2 years of experience. I love my job and the pay is good enough. I have 25K worth of college courses to pay for in order to earn a computer science degree. My career end-goal is to become a security engineer or security architect.
Should I spend my time and money on a computer science degree or focus 100% on progressional certifications (CEH, CISA, CISSP, CCNA, OSCP, GIAC)? Thank you. At the end of the day I want to ensure that I spend my time and money wisely. If I don’t need a degree to reach my goal then I won’t pursue it.
