Project Description

Now that you have finished the course, I would like you to come up with a plan on how you will become a successful cyber security professional.

Below is the format I would like you to use

  • First decide what branch of cyber security you want to specialize in. Are you going to be an ethical hacker, forensic analyst etc?
  • What certifications are you going to write?
  • How do you plan to study for these exams? Are you going to take a course online?
  • What other kinds of skills do you intend to acquire in your pursuit towards becoming a cyber security professional?

Also I have attached a few PDF documents for you to download and read. These documents will provide you with a list of movies as well as blogs and websites that you visit to improve your cyber security knowledge.
