About This Event

Sec+, GSEC, CISSP, CEH — cybersecurity certifications can seem like alphabet soup if you’re new to the industry or just trying to break in.

It’s important to know that certifications don’t guarantee a particular job or particular salary in cybersecurity. They’re simply a way to validate your skill set in a way the industry and potential employers recognize. While you don’t need a certification to land a job in cyber, many find they help open doors during their job search.

But where do you start?

In this event geared toward people new to cybersecurity, the Flatiron School team will help you navigate the options so you can determine which certification is right for you and your career goals.

What You’ll Learn

  • Do I need a certification to get a job in cybersecurity?
  • How certifications can help your career
  • Identifying the cert that fits your personal career goals
  • Vendor-specific vs. vendor-neutral
  • Security clearances
  • Timeline & costs

Who is this event for?

No experience is required to attend! If you’ve had some experience with cybersecurity in general, there is still a lot to learn from this workshop. This is a no-strings-attached opportunity for you to gain knowledge and find out if cybersecurity is something you’re passionate about.
