How can I get hired as a Cybersecurity professional without a degree?
CompTIA Cybersecurity+ and CompTIA Net+ are two of the most important certifications that you’ll need, if you’re new to cybersecurity. Here’s why: A little-known regulation by the government is DOD-8570. (Technically, it has been updated to DOD-8140, but that uses the old DOD-8570 chart). You must hold at least one certification if you’re in a situation where sensitive government data might be available to you. Typically the minimum asked for is CompTIA Security+. This certification is requested by companies even if they will not work for the government. These certifications will make you highly sought-after and should not be a problem to get placed.
