Earlier during my college days, I worked on a wireless penetration testing-based thesis. The learning stayed with me for all these years. Well, the only thing that helped me improve my cybersecurity experience and skills is that I practice almost every day on penetration testing platforms. My ex-boss helped me to understand the importance of credentials. So, to validate my professional accomplishments and evaluate my penetration testing skills, I decided to opt for the Licensed Penetration Tester (L|PT) Master exam. This credential helped me prove my worth.
My advice to all cybersecurity professionals is that although credentials are time-consuming and demand patience, they help you to gain expert-level skills. It also offers you professional recognition. It is the most beautiful, state-of-the-art journey, which assists in chasing your dreams. And, L|PT Master was one such experience for me!
