I have my CompTIA Security+, which is a baseline credential that covers the foundations of cybersecurity, and my CySA+, which is an intermediate credential that focuses on handling the data and security analytics. I am working on my PenTest+, another intermediate credential which covers the knowledge and skills necessary to perform vulnerability assessments and other tests to determine the security posture of networks and meet legal compliance requirements.

Applying the knowledge, I learned in school in a real-life practical setting. Freedom to learn and play with all the different tools and technologies has been enlightening.
