Get a Bachelor's degree in any IT related field. Get an entry-level job like:

  • Security Administrator
  • Network Administrator
  • System Administrator

Then after enough experience, you will be promoted to one of the following roles:

  • Security Specialist
  • Security Analyst
  • Security Engineer
  • Security Consultant
  • Security Auditor

You will have to get 7+ years of experience in IT Security and then you will be ready to apply for a Security Director job. Hope this helps.

Hi karan, to climb to the top of the security ladder and becoming a Security Director, you first need a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (B.Tech or BE), Cyber Security or a related technical field. An MS will be a plus on any job application. Then you should have very good experience in Information Security domain, so that you know Security aspects in-and-out. Big companies usually looks for a relevant master’s degree with a concentration in IT security, along with high exoerience.
