    Hi Jeremy. This is a security question but it falls along the lines of networking. So, I’ve been working in IT for about 3 years now and because of a job opening I made to move to the cyber security realm. When I first started out I like most people was fascinated with the sexy side of cyber (hacking, pen testing and the like) but after being in the field I realize that my skillsets are nowhere near the level they need to be to even scratch the surface of that area of cyber security. Thinking that I may have bitten off more than I could chew, I attended to a few conferences and spoke with a few professionals in the field I noticed that there is a basic skillset in each area of cyber security that beginners need to have in order to be successful in the field. From a networking professional prospective I’d like to ask you, what networking skillsets do you feel are critical skills to know to prepare someone for a career in cyber security. Thanks!
