Getting into Cyber Security

Hello Everyone,

 

I have 20+ years experience in a desktop support role and I have my Comptia Sec+ cert. I was laid off last year and took the first desktop support contacting job after the lay off which was converted to a full time position after 6 month. I want to get into cyber security and I know I need to work on my certs. I made a path for my certs as follows: SSCP, Azure fundamentals, Azure Admin, Azure Security, CCSP, CISSP. I would like to get the SSCP, AZ fundamental and AZ Admin within the next 6 months. My end goal is to focus on cloud security. If anyone has any recommendations please let me know.

 

Thank you all.
