Do you want to have a career in the cyber security field? Then you will need to start your road to becoming a security expert. Before we start about what you will need, I will debunk some crazy demands in the cyber security world. Education is important, lets keep that in mind, but a lot of companies are asking juniors for 5 years of cyber security experience. This is something impossible to achieve, so how do you win the trust of the client to hire you in their project? It is by working hard and studying hard.
Start doing some research on the fields that you like. For example I am interested in Social Engineering, Ethical hacking and Cyberconflicts. So I started a website (Cyberwarzone.com) which I use to collect and research topics on the mentioned fields above.
