So I’m trying to make sense of the two. I know network/cloud security is all about securing network infrastructure which needs skills in windows, Linux, python, networking, penetration testing, cryptography and other things….
When it comes to application security, are we talking about applications that people download? Like Instagram, Snapchat etc. Apps that download from the apple store and google play or are there different types of applications? I check on google and it said there is a lot of overlap between network/cloud security and application security. Like they are both under the same roof. I’m assuming application security requires more knowledge of coding?
Can you guys explain the similarities and differences between network/cloud security vs application security?
Please explain in detail the concepts of application security, what it’s about, what are the technical skills needed in application security? Example, Can someone who is involved in network/cloud security transition into application security? If so, what are the additional technical skills this person will have to develop? Sorry, I’m a newbie going to school this fall and I am just very curious about these topics.
