The value of coding, multiple languages (CS background) vs the value of Networking/Cloud skills (IT-Networking background) in the world of security?

Basically what I am trying to figure out is the path to take in the world of cyber security. My understanding is that certain roles/specialties in security will be more suited for those coming from a CS background and others will be more suited for those coming from a IT-Networking/Cloud background. I ask this because my nephew is going to university soon and debating between these two fields of study. He has no background in either one but is interested in the world of tech.
Can you all please list your reasons and elaborate as to which one he should pick? Also explain and provide examples as to which roles/careers someone in CS would do vs someone in networking/cloud, for security careers. Thanks in advance.
