So for example- someone who works in cloud security, or industrial controls security or is a pen tester, or does cryptography or works in digital forensics/incident recovery etc .. are all of these what u call “specialties” within cyber security? And if so, are these more geared towards network infrastructure security or do these specialties apply to software/application security as well? If not, what are the “specialties in software/application security?
I will be studying a 3 year computer networking and security program. They will teach us a lot of securing routers and switches, penetration testing, cryptography, digital forensics and recovery, traffic analytics, threat management/analysis, advanced security appliances and etc.
