Hello folks, I am looking for some great cyber security certifications to choose from so that I can kick start my career in this domain.
What do you mean by best?
Comparing certs is comparing apples to oranges. If you're technical, then get something like a CSSLP. If you like management, CISSP and CAP are great.
"Best" depends on your personal needs.
I just want to add also that if you're starting and want to get into cybersecurity, you should get your Sec+ to start things off. You can then build off of that because Sec+ is like an overview of just about everything cybersec related.
I'm kinda new to this field too. After attaining my Sec+, I got my CAP because I enjoy RMF and the admin/management side of cybersecurity.
Here was an article that was posted recently on the topic of people getting into the industry ("pursuers"):
Cybersecurity professionals to newcomers: Focus on vendor-neutral certifications
Noticed post. When pursuing a certification it makes sense to pick a certification based on your current experience or slightly above that will help move into the next position. Don't focus on vendor/vendor neutral.
Example 1: You work for a company and use XYZ technology/software. Your company has a contract for technology/software licensing/support. In some cases it includes access to the product training/certification program.
Example 2: You work for a company and "sell" XYZ technology/software. Your company most likely has access to the training/certification program in order for support staff to maintain "certified/approved" vendor status (e.g. CISCO, checkpoint, Microsoft).
Example 3: You work for a company doing desktop/helpdesk support. After a few years of experience you pursue vendor neutral certification (e.g. A+, Sec+) in addition to completing online (cyber courses) to help get into the next position.
Example 4: You are in school or military and have limited IT experience and pursue vendor neutral certification (e.g. A+, Sec+) in addition to completing online (cyber courses) to help get into an entry level position.
Example 5: You work for a company doing various IT/Security tasks functions. After 5 years of experience you think you understand a lot of topics and decide to pursue vendor neutral certification (e.g. CISSP)
