Security clearances. Are they absolutely necessary if you want to delve into this field? Are there a lot of jobs available without them or a limited few? What if you have debt that you’re still paying off or trying to better your credit score but aren’t quite there yet?
What exactly disqualifies you from clearances?
What if you were passionate concerning politics and/or critical of the government’s response to citizen’s quality of life through social media?
What if you got into some trouble at age 18, straightened completely up and had your record expunged; even going on to be clean as a whistle save a few speeding fines over a 20 year period?
Just how important are clearances in cyber security? Just how difficult are they to obtain? Just how limited are you without them? Thank you
