How can I get a job in Cybersecurity without a degree
CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ are the most important certifications you need if you are brand new to cybersecurity. This is why: The DOD-8570 regulation is a lesser-known government regulation. It has been technically updated to DOD-8140. However, it still uses the 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. CompTIA Security+ usually is the minimum certification required. Even companies that do not work with government agencies are required to obtain this certification. These certifications are highly desirable and will help you to be placed.
