I have a Teritary Diploma in Business Computing in Singapore and I am looking to do a career switch to Cybersecurity either as a Pen Tester or Cloud Security.
So far from my research, I am getting started with the following.
- Comptia A+ certification
- Comptia Network+
- Comptia Security+
- Comptia Linux+ or LPIC-1
Is this a recommended route or is jumping to CISSP and CCSP too fast? I plan to be taking the ISC2 associate route. Also after Comptia A+ do I still need to take the MTA Networking and Security fundamentals before moving on to Network+ or Security+ will that be a repeated learning route?
Last question, between OSCP or CEHv11 which would you recommend? I understand that OSCP is completely hands on with a 24 hours exams. If i take the CEHv11 i plan to take the practical as well for mastery certification.
Thanks alot in advance for any possible advice in this area.
