I got into Cyber Security as far as a 2 year degree. I was unable to get a job with that training and I don't have the financial resources to continue. Also, all the jobs I see listed in Cybersecurity have a lot of requirements for job experience, a 4+ year degree, plus several expensive certifications. Also, a lot of what I'm hearing is industry really considers qualified people to be those looking into Cybersecurity as a second career choice and already have experience administering databases or networks. I've also heard that many colleges have terrible cybersecurity curriculums and many companies are skeptical of these degrees. This was also true in my case. I had two Firewall classes and not once did we configure a Firewall or even look at a GUI; it was all about security managerial roles.
So I'm here starting over from a different direction with Stef's KillerPython. The strange thing is I feel I might someday be able to at at least do Penetration Testing if I get good at Python and KALI Linux tools which my college courses.
