Cybersecurity Career Path
Over the years, cybersecurity career paths have become more formalized as security incidents have increased and the skills required to keep companies safe have become more specialized.
As a result, the cybersecurity field offers distinct career paths with milestones to be met and requirements to fulfill.
The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) International developed a career path diagram for security professionals, called the Cyber Security Career Lifecycle (CSCL). The five-step model helps aspiring and professional security experts chart what education, experience, and certifications they will need to progress.
