Why Should I Go Into A Cybersecurity Career?
In the last six years, cybersecurity jobs have seen a 94% increase. If you are looking for a career with a high degree of flexibility and change, then cybersecurity is the right career choice. Cybersecurity is an expanding industry that offers many different job opportunities and great career prospects. 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.
Degree vs Certifications
While a certificate is cheaper than a degree in cybersecurity, it takes longer and costs more. The degree is more general and can be applied to many industries. However, it requires less practical skills.
You can demonstrate that you have the skill an employer is looking for by getting the right certification. Also, there is a legal requirement (see above). This is why 70% of cybersecurity workers believe that certifications are essential for their professional development. Only 10% said they had a bachelor’s and 5% said that they had a master’s.

The average salary of cybersecurity professionals was $112974 in the United States on February 20, 2021. The average cybersecurity salaries are between $65,000 (25th%) and $145,000. (75th%) Entry-level jobs typically offer lower salaries, but great work opportunities and greater responsibility.

How can I get hired as a Cybersecurity professional 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. Although technically it has been updated as DOD-8140, the chart used the DOD-8570 old format. 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 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.
