To those of you working in Cybersecurity… did you come from a traditional CompSci educational background or a IT/Networking educational background ?

Which one did you go to school for, if any? I ask because I have been accepted to a Computer-Engineering-Computing Science program and a Networking/Cybersecurity program at the same college. Both offer paid internships and both are 3 years long. My interest does lean more towards the networking/security program but lately I’ve been having second thoughts and maybe should study the other program. I am indecisive… thoughts?



For me: Medical Field > self taught PC > PC support > Novell Support > Networking > Security

No school at all for IT. Networking used to be and still is a good foundation for security.
