Cybersecurity as a profession has a wide scope and fresh entrants are in much demand these days as there is a shortage of skilled security professionals in these domains.

  • Building a career in cybersecurity depends on the kind of profile you are looking in the cybersecurity domain as this field has many different kinds of job roles.

  • If you are a rookie to this domain I suggest you first get a comprehensive idea of this domain. You could check this out https://www.edureka.co/blog/what-is-cybersecurity/

  • Once you are clear with it you probably have to give some thought to the job role (Network security specialist, Ethical hacker, security consultant, etc) that suits your interests and aligns with your career aspirations.

  • Based on your choice I suggest you get a certification for the same and get some practical experience. Check this out https://www.edureka.co/community/56433/establishing-a-career-path-in-cyber-security

This will pave the way for your cybersecurity career! All the best :)
