Hi guys may I kindly seek for some advise on what are some of the must-have certification and/or courses to attain in order to start heading into this sector? E.g. is CISSP a good start?

I'm in my 30s with non-tech related local U degree, mainly operation manager role in security services and would like to start venturing into a new sector.

Thanks and appreciate your response

which sector are you looking to venture? CISSP is normally for ppl who is doing RISK or a requirement for management role in cyber.

i dun think any one will offer you an management role if you are new in cyber unless you join a start up who is desperate for resources.

Depends on what you want to do? I switched at 30, started from zero. Not gonna be easy but can do. Try going through job sites and the roles you want to try. Check the type of professional certs required and go for it. Good luck dude.

33 this year... Work in a FAANG as cyber security engineer. Make around 360k a year. Getting certs quite easy frankly... I have majority of the gold standard certs... And some that I take for fun during my free time... I think more importantly is how much value you can bring to the table to your employer...
