How do start a career in the Cybersecurity field?

Hi, everyone,

I just graduated from university and I major in Computer Science.

I want to pursue a career in Cyber Security, but I don’t know where to start.

I heard that CompTIA A+, Network+ and Secuirty+ is a good start.

I know that these certs will not certainly help you find a job, but will this increase the chance to get a job at entry-level in this field?? and is it helpful to have them?

Any help/information is appropriated

thank you.

Cybersecurity covers many skills.

Do you want to go down the red team (attacker/testing) or blue team (defender/ response) path?

If you want to be red team, check out something like “hack the box” which is virtual labs that let you learn the skills of hacking.

If you want to be blue team, learn the skills of risk management and audit, also some sysadmin skills both windows and Linux.

Either way what you need is a wide skill set.
Don’t get stuck in only learning programming, or only learning networking.
