Bad answers about breaking into cybersecurity are too easy to find. Don't know why so many people post what personally worked for them when breaking into cybersecurity and phrase it as universal.

Maybe this is search engines being bad and promoting "definite" answers over more nuanced takes - but no matter the reason, folks trying to break in to cybersecurity are underserved by the highest profile & most marketed & most accessible answers :/

(this is not to discount folks who *do* have and publish more nuanced takes, but the eternal battle of "certs bad, get degrees" vs "degrees bad, get certs" is just eurgh)

@tweedge Common, it's a triangle, plenty of people think both are bad :p

(not a cybersecurity person, but most IT areas have all three views prominently expressed.)
