How Do I Get a Job in Security?

Like any career, the first thing you need to do before applying for a job is to get the appropriate training and licenses.

If you can say yes to the first 7 headings we can help you achieve the last requirement on the list. In fact, we almost guarantee that if you can without any doubt say yes to the first 7 requirements you will already have most of skills it takes to obtain your security licence.
