“Type of schooling needed to become a cyber security professional.

  • Get your high school diploma.
  • Enroll in a four-year college where you’ll receive a bachelor’s degree in a computer-related field.
  • If your school allows this, complete an independent study project. This will give you some real-world experience as well as a boost on your resume.
  • Find a job as a network and systems administrator or in customer service support to build your experience level. These are entry-level jobs, but they will help you to identify security issues.
  • Certifications are voluntary, but having some is highly regarded by hiring managers. So, consider them.
  • Once you’ve worked for a couple years, you will have gained enough experience to look for a more advanced position, such as an information security analyst.

Salaries average in the $110Ks for most of the positions, especially after you’ve been in the profession for around five to seven years.”
