One of the most common questions I’m asked by non-cyber professionals is “How do I start a career in cyber?” and fortunately I think there’s a relatively easy answer.
The British Computer Society (BCS) have an entry level qualification called the Certificate in Information Security Management Principles (CISMP). It’s typically a five day course and covers most aspects of information security at a high level, digging in to some in a bit more detail. It was the first security course I attended, many years ago, and I can thoroughly recommend it for beginners, even for those with limited IT knowledge.
If you’re looking for a company that provides this course in fantastic surroundings with outstanding instructors, look no further than these guys below (it’s who I work for). This is one of the courses that I teach, but I don’t think I’m scheduled to teach this particular one. If you do book on it, let me know and I’ll make sure I come along and see you.
