Mr. Munroe,

Thank you very much! I have sent out a connection request via linkedin to you as well as I am very interested in the training and to get some certs. I only have classroom experience, no hands on which is making my job search very difficult because a lot of the companies want bachelor /associate degrees.

Hi Todd
There are a couple of organizations out there that helps vertans move into cyber security. Although most ask for a degree, the fast is that there are hundreds of thousands of opennings that no one can fill and a majority of the roles are for junior analysts. Take a look at
https://www.npower.org/ and https://www.icmcp.org/ - both have specific vertans focus.

What you need to get a cyber security job is hands-on experience to show you can get in and do the work. Look for all the free online training you can find and then talk to those folks.

My company is a cyber security training company and I am work with both of them and give them highly discounted training that leads to a security analyst level 1 cert. If you send me an email address or connect with my on LinkedIn, I will also send you all the training we offer through promotion - we have another one next week.

What is your cyber experience?

Best Regards
Will
