Fortune Education recently published an article outlining the continued need for cybersecurity talent. The article looks into the hundreds of thousands of vacancies that companies are eager to fill, though remarks on requirements that are slow to change that would expand the talent pool. That doesn't mean hope is lost for those without the state qualifications.
If you’re already in a technical role—but not specifically cybersecurity—Markow suggests finding ways to “bake” cybersecurity into your current role. This could involve learning a new skill set through shorter-term training opportunities or boot camps.
Another suggestion mentioned in the article is becoming Security+ Certified. While not a substitute for direct experience, entry-level certificates provide helpful fundamentals and greatly improve the opportunities to expand beyond your current role today and begin a career in cybersecurity.
