go look at f secure, sec consulting, centurion, horangi.......

Hmm, I think those companies are quite hard to get in as a fresh grad unless you have certs like OSCP already. Are you working in one of them?

Yes, I am in one of them. Not really required cert... Just you need to show them your interest and be really to take 4-5 cert from offsec and Crest in the first yr. This is what my boss expected me to have that time

Hi all, I see a lot of information about software engineer career in SG but not so much for cybersecurity/infosecurity so decided to make one thread here. Hopefully more people can share their career path, salary and working experience here.

To start it off, I am a fresh grad from a private uni and just started my career in cybersecurity as an engineer (mainly SIEM deployment/configuration). My salary is low 3k working in a local cybersecurity company.

I only started working for a couple of months so not much to share as of now.

Looking forward to your sharing!

Which local cybersecurity company ?

Mainly doing deployment/onboarding for siem, log source etc. I agree that working in this industry have to keep learning and go for certs.


Try to minimal log source boarding & setup job as not much value .

Focus on security solution .

My 2 cents advice .

For example, I decided to become a security guard in real life. All my life I thought that I would be engaged in cybersecurity, but unfortunately, after a couple of months of studying, I realized that this is too difficult for me. I was recently inspired by this company https://www.ccsecurityservices.co.uk/mobile-patrol-and-key-holding-response-service/ so I decided that I would like to protect people in real life. I have been training in the gym for 5 years, so I have great physical fitness. Now I'm looking for Security Guard Courses so if you have any suggestions, PM me please.

Try CSA/DSTA, they pay higher

Seem like government is focusing pretty a lot on cybersecurity. Massively recruiting
