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.

Depending on your background and career aspiration.

it's difficult to suggest if we don't know what are you looking at.

Its a two sided coin.

 

Either you go very technical (OSCP is a good one)  or the managerial route (CISSP/CISM).
