I have a CS job, don’t think I know enough. Not sure where to start in terms of Certs

This probably gets asked often, so not going to be hurt if it gets removed.

I’m currently a Software Dev on a Cybersecurity team(1 month), with a focus on vulnerability management/remediation. I’m afraid I don’t know enough to do my job well. I was considering going for a CompTIA cert maybe, but wasn’t sure if I should go with the ITF, A+, or Security+. Or if I should skip them all together. I currently hold no certs.

I’m lacking pretty heavily in networking knowledge, but haven’t had any luck learning it either.

I know there is a wiki here with a bunch of training resources, but I don’t know where I should start exactly, what I can skip, that kind of thing. I was leaning towards the Security+, I’m just afraid of not knowing some expected knowledge required for it. Any advice?
