Question to security guys out there ( or techs)

Cvdasfg

What kind of background do you guys have as far as schooling goes? How did you get employed? My ideal situation would be to take something like this. www.carrollcc.edu/CECertificates/Certificate---Cyber-Security/

 

that would mean me being certified in a few different things ( read it if youd like) 

 

 

Would that be good? Or would I need to do more/less?

 

My problem is that while I did very well in high school I dont think I could do the advanced maths that go along with actual 2-4 year programs. Any suggestions or useful information would be very helpful :)

 

EDIT: I'm in the USA if that matters.

The link is HTTP not HTTPS... that little "S" on the end is a marker for "SSL" - a secure connection to the webpage

 

basically, your link to a security site is not secure. hence, "Sweet Irony"

Thats just what the community college offers. I'm more looking at that because of the fact its not 4 years of college. I'm open to other suggestions aswell.

best advice? go to college... It is a great investment. even if you do land a job in the field of IT Security, you will be paid ALOT more for having the college education.

What type of degree? Is there any colleges/degrees that you can just do classes that pertain to your degree... not random history/science classes?
