How to start my cyber security journey

0 votes
I am currently enlisted in the army I have two years left on my current contract before I go reserves. I have a great interest in starting now while I am enlisted on transitioning to cyber security when I get out of the army. I want to take skills ports classes on synergy security that the army offers for free online classes then I hope to start eventually taking certs such as it fundamentals then network+ then security+ then a+ and probably see where to go after that. I currently came in to the army with 1 years worth of college credit in general electives. I understand having a ba in computer science is good to have also starting a career in the cyber security industry. I am just trying to see where I should start and what classes I need to take to at least try to exit the army with a ascociates in computer science. Thanks for any advice and critiques!
