CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Network+ are the most crucial certifications you’ll need if cybersecurity is your first topic. This is because of a less-known government regulation, DOD-8570. Technically, it has been updated by DOD-8140 but still uses the DOD-8570 chart. You need at least one of these certifications if your position might expose you to sensitive government information. CompTIA Security+ is the minimum requirement. This certification is required by even companies that are not going to work with the government. These certifications are highly desirable and will help you to be placed.
