It’s validating seeing people enter or level up themselves in cybersecurity and technology inspired by our content. We receive hundreds of messages asking for advice on how to get into cybersecurity or pivot to a different function within technology.

You might be a mentor that has been asking about the way “in” or you might be someone on the journey yourself. You might even be a practitioner looking to pivot to a different job role and have forgotten how to immerse yourself in the process. Regardless of your plight, here’s some advice that might help.

This isn’t all encompassing, but we think it’s a place to start. Also, this is only our opinion. There are many roads to get to where you want to go.
