I'll add that the better folk in this area are not getting their knowledge solely in the classroom. It's a big world and you also need some psychology courses as many of the issues are exploiting the users. I'm sure you know "social engineered exploits."
I don't see a lot of job postings on this. It looks to me this is part and parcel of an IT lead or CIO position.
Get back to your school counselor for a chat on this.
Not sure if this is the right place to post this but...
Honestly I do not know a whole lot about cyber security but I just know it is a quickly growing industry. I also know I want a job that I won't have to travel and just come into work in the same building each day.
The college I am transferring to has two degrees I am first trying to decide on. ALSO, as far as cyber security is concerned, they have a graduate certification program that is CAE/IAE certified that you can take after you finish your computer-related bachelors.
I can either choose between Computer Information Systems (CIS) or Computer Science (CS) before I can do the certification, which do you recommend?
What kind of careers can be expected in the cyber security industry?
How's the career-advancement opportunity? Is this more of a stagnant thing or can you work your way up to managerial positions?
What kind of entry-level options are available? Are there commonly internship opportunities in this field?
How's the pay? Can you work your way up to a six figure salary and beyond?
Thank you all for your input, it is very appreciated.
