#100DaysofInfoSec-Day 1 Introduction

Hello, my name is Ardrionna. I go by Audrey! I am currently in the process of transitioning my career from a Business Systems Analyst to a career in cybersecurity, particularly in the role of a Cyber Crime Analyst. My idea role in cybersecurity is either Digital forensics or Penetration Tester.

 

How I came up with my career path?

I did a ton of research. Why you ask? Because you must learn what this field is about and if this is something you will be passionate about. Once you understand the field start looking at job titles and trust once you come across a role that stands out. I also applied what I like to do. I love to learn, read, research, and problem-solving. I’m a need to know all the details type of person. Easy.  I'll add a few resources that helped me figure out my ideal career path.
