Why Should I Train For Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is a growing industry with a lot of different jobs that offer ample opportunity for career growth. Cyberseek claims that there are over 500,000 job openings. In the Tampa / St.Petersburg / Clearwater job market, for instance, there are over 6,000 job openings. This means that cybersecurity professionals should always be in demand.
Which should you get for cybersecurity-A degree or Certifications?
The cost of a cybersecurity degree is higher than a certification, and it takes more time. The degree is more general and can be applied to many industries. However, it requires less practical skills.
A certification shows that you are able to demonstrate the skills employers require. There is also 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% of respondents said they had a bachelor’s or master’s degree, while 5% said they had a combination.

Can I really finish the training in 5 weeks?
Microsoft and CompTIA, internationally recognized industry leaders, created the Cyber Security IT Practitioner program curriculum and hands-on labs and is designed to be able to be completed in five weeks (or ten weeks if you choose evening classes).
How can I get hired in Cybersecurity without a degree?
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. 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+ is usually the minimum required. This certification is requested by companies even if they will not work for the government. If you get these certifications, the demand for your skills is very strong and you should have no problem getting placed.
