Read what Nikhil Singhvi Jain S had to say on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6548817489017610241/
After completing my graduation, I got selected in one of the leading companies for cybersecurity audit; that’s when I got involved in cybersecurity. I would say certifications have helped me to prove and improve myself. However, among all my certifications, the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) hands down remains the best one. The ECSA credential stands out from any other certifications. The excellent training content and the vast exposure are the two leading factors of EC-Council programs. This training has allowed me to think logically.
During the practice sessions, we the multiple VMs, helped me understand the real-world challenges better. Plus, tools like SEToolkit, Nmap, Metasploit, and many more were the major highlights. I would say anyone who wants to start their career in cybersecurity then start with attaining entry-level credentials, probably Certified Network Defender (C|ND), Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), etc. These will help you get a job and have a good understanding of ethical hacking.
