    Can someone from a Non IT or nonquantitative background move into cyber sec

    by Aspiring analyst ·

    Hello Everyone, can you please help me on deciding whether i should pursue a career in cyber security or not, I have a BA in Accounting but i would be more than happy for leaving the industry for learning cyber security and pursuing relevant certifications, however i am not sure whether employers of cyber security professionals would take this in a bad way as my background mostly is outside the scope of IT or quantitative subjects.
    and if so how should i start in terms of learning (aside from (ISC)2 and comptia certifications as i think those will be the next step for me after i get the hang of the foundations first).

      Most of cyber sec is policies and training your employees. That and getting your systems secure. I doubt a non-programmer can do the actual security work but someone with good writing skills and a psychology degree would be instrumental in policy writing and understanding how such breaches occur.
