Read what Azizur Rahman had to say on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6560106512054882304/
Three years after I started my career as a developer, I switched to software testing. As this domain was entirely new to me, and cyber security was booming as an industry, I decided to learn penetration testing. I gained desired knowledge of penetration testing with the help of training and credentialing programs. For that, I took up the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) program, then deepened my knowledge and skills with the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA). I found ECSA as a practical-oriented and a hands-on program. To validate my technical skills, I successfully attained the L|PT (Master) credential. Both C|EH and ECSA offered me well-researched training material. These programs are apt for those who are looking for self-paced training; they impart on-point knowledge.
The experience I have gained with these training programs is exceptional! All my learnings pay off every day at my workplace. I would suggest that all beginners in the CyberSec industry “stay hungry” to acquire more knowledge. Moreover, for career advancement, rely on industry-recognized credentials like the ones by EC-Council.
