  • 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

You'll usually need relevant pre-entry work experience to get a job. However, there are a number of graduate schemes and internships (at student and graduate level) in cyber and information security which don't require pre-entry experience. Many companies now require cyber security professionals to have a bachelor's degree, but some companies hire candidates with certifications for various positions. If you have a background in technology or have prior security experience, you may be able to obtain an entry-level job with the right certification. Another good way to gain experience as a cyber security expert is to attend workshops and take courses aimed at improving your overall knowledge of the subject. The more you read and learn about the cyber security industry, the better equipped you will be to answer interview questions and apply the knowledge learned through coursework.
