If you’re considering a degree in Cyber Security, please do the research on the program you’re considering.
Often times schools will advertise their awesome Cyber Security Major, and then it turns out to be a waste of time.

I got a cybersecurity and software development degree from UMUC. You will become a developer. You will not become a security-prepared professional. Mainly because they go over NIST framework requirements and 'fix' applications that have certain OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities….HOWEVER, you will have virtually NO knowledge of networking. Zip. Zilch. I don't think one can be a cybersecurity professional without networking knowledge. So, I'm working towards comptia network+ and security+ and OSCP now. I am a great developer, but no I don't feel it prepared me for cybersecurity.

Talking to my local ISSOs/ISSMs they don't care if you have a degree as long as you have the certs and experience. That said, HR is who you need to convince first, not the hiring manager. My degree may as well be "underwater basket weaving" but it's the checkbox they want. My training outside of my degree is what actually landed me my first security related job.

Thanks for the links, VERY helpful!

How can I learn Cyber Security by myself? Because I know nothing about it (just a beginner but I want to learn.

Elyziah Reyes says:

Definitely struggled with if committing to the UTSA degree path was the right decision, but now I understand that having a concept of the business environment that you are protecting is really essential.  But self studying gives you the room to branch into what areas you are motivated to specialize in, so I'm grateful I chose my route
