I want to switch from IT Audit to Cyber. Have my CISA and working as a First year Senior at a Big4. What certs can I get to break into cybersecurity considering I only have FAIT and external audit experience?

Forget about certs, find a cyber project to work on at your firm.


The cert will help you get your foot in the door on a cloud project

Was in a similar position as you. Got the CISSP and worked on some side projects on my own time, and someone in the tech industry was good enough to give me a chance. Although it took me more than a year of continuous interviewing and rejection to get there. But I was able to finally make the change.


get the security+ and say 3-4 cloud certs (in one cloud). Also get experience building and hardening the environments

Pick one cloud and learn it really well. Get at least 3-4 professional certs in that cloud


what big4. I am in final process of making the switch
