A lot of people want to break into cybersecurity. And why not? Where else can you have a blast, work with really smart people, earn a great living, have awesome job security, and do something truly impactful for the company you work for.

However, it can be a particularly difficult industry to break into, especially if you don’t have the financial resources to pursue the education necessary to get hired.

Gerald Auger, Chief Content Creator at Simply Cyber, noticed this gap between the haves and the have nots and he’s been working hard to create a pool of resources that are accessible to anyone, anywhere, for free.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Giving people access to a free cybersecurity education
  • The catch-22 of listing entry-level jobs that require 2-3 years of experience
  • Which cybersecurity roles serve as the best entry points into the industry
  • Where Simply Cyber will go over the next few years
