I’m looking to change my career course into cybersecurity with no prior experience. A little bit of background, I currently work at a PR firm and a number of my clients are cybersecurity companies that specialize in the VM field, which is what sparked my interest.
I’ve been researching the best certifications available for beginners but wanted to hear some opinions given that there is a seemingly endless pool of options. So far, it seems like Sec+, CEH, Penetration Testing, and CISSP is a good recommended sequence of certs to build up a resume without prior experience. I’ve also heard that Network + is also pretty valuable, if not entirely essential.
Are there any other programs or certs worth checking out? Qualys’ pen testing and certs also look pretty great and are free.
