Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing career fields in the world. Job seekers, career switchers, and hiring managers alike need a fast but rigorous way to qualify candidates for jobs. Certifications prepare cybersecurity specialists for jobs and help companies determine which candidates are best qualified for their open positions.

Colleges and universities award academic degrees in cybersecurity or related fields. Typically, students earn an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree. An associate degree usually requires 60-75 hours with about 15-30 of those credits in the field.
