We dedicated an entire week of posts to breaking into the white-hot information security field, including how to get experience in IT security, tips for crushing your first security interview, certifying as an ethical hacker, and even what to do if you get audited during certification.
Even if you don’t have experience in this white-hot career field, you still probably have everything you need in your current position to start your security career. You just have to know where to look, how to ask, and what to do.
In this 30-minute webinar, CBT Nuggets trainer Keith Barker explained how to enter the burgeoning IT security field without formal training, which certifications you should earn to validate your security knowledge, and the next steps for becoming a security master.
