I recently passed my Certified in Cybersecurity (CC) exam and would like to get some guidance on becoming a cybersecurity professional.
I am currently working as IT Service Centre Consultant and want to pursue another cybersecurity certification but most of them requires experience. Which one is the most suitable to pass after CC?
Thanks and Regards,
It depends very much on the area of cybersecurity you wish to work in. I'd suggest that you look at each career path and the typical certifications a person in each it likely to have for their competence level. Your alternative would be take certifications without a clear direction, but that could involve a lot of wasted time and effort.
For example if you look at the link below you can click through to info about the roles an the qualifications relevant to each:
We have an event coming up that might interest you.
The Center for Cyber Safety and Education is launching an inclusive conversation series for cybersecurity professionals. This virtual conversation allows newcomers to the cybersecurity field to come together, build ideas, and talk it out. Please come and share your experiences that led to successful transition into the cybersecurity field either from school or another position/industry. While you're here, you can encourage fellow attendees to do the same!

An alternative is to look at he Chartered Institute of Information Security's capability methodology https://www.ciisec.org/Capability_Methodology.
Start with the roles and skills frameworks. There's a lot of information. Don't be intimidated by that.
Thanks for this post. I got my CC certification recently (last year). Due to time constraints . have not been opportuned to keep track of the CPE requirements. A more targeted and direct approach towards certification will surely help
