@kvvpa In my view industry certs are better. Know of a number of security and IT people who do not have degrees.
@seankearney thank you for the resources and encouragement! I enjoyed the workshop I took today. I’ll check out cert paths
@kvvpa Quite necessary to be honest. Not because people without can't figure the tech, but the majority of infosec isn't tech itself, it's management work. And usually you'll have a harder time around management without.
not crucial, and most certifications are dubious. Experience matters, also involvement in known projects and previous employers.
@kvvpa It really depends on the role you are interested in. In smaller organizations you will have to interact with non-cyber people a lot - That is where a degree helps.
In larger orgs you can be in your niche and don't necessarily have to interact with non-cyber people.
@seb it seems the degree is mostly a political thing? I definitely see how that can be beneficial. I wonder if I can maybe do this in reverse- maybe a Bootcamp and some job experience while working on an online degree part time. Mulling it all over. Thanks for your insight
