Why Should I Train For Cybersecurity?
The number of cybersecurity jobs increased by 94% in the last six years. If you are interested in a career that is constantly evolving and changing, this is the time to start a career as a cybersecurity professional. There are many jobs in cybersecurity that can offer career growth opportunities. Cyberseek reports that there are almost 500,000 job positions. There are more than 6,000 job opportunities in the Tampa / St.Petersburg/ Clearwater area, for example. This means that cybersecurity professionals should always be in demand.
Which should you get for cybersecurity-A degree or Certifications?
A cybersecurity degree costs more than a certification and takes longer. Although the degree gives you a broad understanding that can be used in many industries, it does not have as many hands-on skills.
Employers want to see that you have the right certification. Also, there is a legal requirement (see above). Because of all this, according to a recent Information Week’s, Dark Reading salary survey, 70% of workers in cybersecurity said certifications were the most important training in developing their career. Only 10% said they had a bachelor’s and 5% said that they had a master’s.

How can I get hired in Cybersecurity without a degree?
CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ are the most important certifications you need if you are brand new to cybersecurity. Here is why: There is a little-known government regulation called DOD-8570. Technically, it has been updated by DOD-8140 but still uses the DOD-8570 chart. The document states that you need to have at least one certification if you are in a job that could expose you to sensitive data. Typically the minimum asked for is CompTIA Security+. Even companies that do not work with government agencies are required to obtain this certification. You should be able to get a job if you have these certifications.
