Intermediate Certification paths? CASP or CISSP?

Hello everyone,

I’d like to start focusing much more on Cybersecurity since I am personally interested in it, and also because it is something on high demand across all IT companies. I’ve been personally interested in computing for many years, and I’ve been on IT positions for at least three years, ranging from ISP technician to Software Project Manager.

On the Networking side together with the CCNA I’ve learned much on configuring physical network devices regarding security, Wireshark and Nmap, security on Layers 2, 3 and 4, logging and Network monitoring.

On Linux Administration side with the RHCSA, I worked with Virtual Machines, basic application security for web servers, file and user permissions, storage services, SELinux.

All of this to say, I’ve had lots of experience in some aspects of Cybersecurity, but I want to get deeper into the specifics. I like to study for the certificates, more than getting the certificate itself.

What would you guys recommend me? I’d like to try the CISSP, but maybe it is too advanced for my right now. Another good option is the CASP, but I’ve read somewhere along this subreddit that it is aimed towards goverment or Department of defense

What can be a good intermediate certificate, that has many contents that I can research and learn long-term on my own time, and it also looks good on a resume at the end of the day?
