    Hi everyone,

    I am inmterested in working in application cyber security field but whenever I check jobboards to investigate what employers are after – there is middle ground and now wondering how to proceed.

    What I am studying:
    1. Cybrary and Securitytube Python for Pentesters
    2. Web application and advanced pentesting courses
    3. CISSP or CSSLP

    mY goal is 2017 to land my first position – am I missing any key skills or courses?

    Also checkout the Security+ and Network+ training on this site.



    That’s a great start, hold on! But don’t forget the basics about networking and application development: for instance, CISSP and CSSLP are for experienced specialists, and, while it can be a good thing to possess the knowledge, it may be hard to monetize these with an employee (and to get certified without prior experience). Maybe add Secure Coding and Network+ to the list (and get CISSP and CSSLP certified when you get the required experience!).



    Thanks for your advice!

    I am definitely looking into secure coding side of things – ti weas my friend who recommended the CSSLP associate level cert. However I ham combining with CSWAE as the two seem to go nicely together and I got it at a discounted pribe.
