I started as a developer but soon understood that most of the developed applications have vulnerabilities. That’s when I made a shift towards InfoSec developer. Now, I am dedicatedly focusing on the cyber aspect of various applications and systems. In the cybersecurity industry, for gaining the trust of the clients, you need to have credible credentials and skills. To prove your capability to someone the best way is to earn widely recognized credentials like Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH). These credentials speak for you. EC-Council’s C|EH was simply amazing! It takes noobs to a level from where they can kickstart their career. This training also covered a few topics from threat intelligence, which is highly useful in pen testing and offensive ethical hacking.
This program had thrilling real-time labs where I found hundreds of tools. Of which Nmap and Datasploit are the ones that I frequently use. Well, for a successful career in this industry, follow any of the following paths: Cyber Transformation, Identity and Access Management, Attack & Pentest, Threat Detection and management. Any of these paths will take you to a higher position in the cyber industry. Most importantly, don’t limit yourself being a script kiddie and validate your skills with C|EH.
