Path To Becoming A Serious Cyber Security Expert

By samebeefde101 ·
Hello everyone,,
So I have just joined this sub reddit. I have been dabbling in and out of Cyber Security as it fascinates me for a couple of years now. But now I have got serious and set myself a goal of becoming a serious cyber security expert by March 2020. After doing some research I have been told "The Complete Ethical Hacking Course: Beginner to Advanced!" (Udemy) is a good starting point to understand the basic concepts.

I've also an aspirational goal to become a certified ethical hacker. The part of the world I am in, Cyber Security is completely underrated, undervalued and the business community here has a backward mentality to it. Once cold hard cash examples of loss and damage are suffered, that will change. But that is 2-3 years off, so time is on my side.

The purpose of posting this is hoping to get some serious guidance on how to achieve enough experience to become a seriously reputable cyber security expert - do I do online courses? Do I attend in person courses? Is a Certified Ethical Hacker qualification all that it is cracked up to be and an appropriate stepping stone on the achievement path to the above goal?

Any serious help or guidance would be very appreciated and I look forward to helping out wherever I can contributing to this.
