Krebs on Security discusses what it takes to have a cybersecurity career. It’s challenging but, like most desirable skills, attainable with study and experience.
“Granted, most people who have just graduated with a degree lack practical experience. But happily, a somewhat unique aspect of cybersecurity is that one can gain a fair degree of mastery of hands-on skills and foundational knowledge through self-directed study and old fashioned trial-and-error.”
As always, aspiration comes before attainability.
