i’ve been interested in pursuing cybersecurity for a few years now, but have yet to take the plunge of dedicating to a certain path/plan/goal. i purchased a subscription to infosec and played around in the lessons they have there, and really enjoyed myself.
i grew up with a mouse in my hand by the age of 5, my dad does network infrastructure type things. i’m no whiz, but i am pretty alright at problem solving when it comes to computer related things, and i enjoy doing it.
it seems there are a variety of classes, certs, careerpaths that involve cybersec. when i sit down to research where i ought to begin, i get overwhelmed and feel that i’m lacking basic knowledge in some areas.
i’m in my mid twenties, never been to college (was derailed by a period of addiction), and now i find myself stuck working in a restaurant, exhausted of this cycle. but also frustrated and restless because my mind runs constantly, and i desperately want to pursue something that fulfills me or interests me in some way. i don’t have much money, but i have drive and i enjoy learning new things, just need some help with direction.
thanks in advance
