Jerimy, Paul. (2020). Security Certification Roadmap.
Jerimy’s infographic is an interesting attempt to classify and visual cybersecurity certifications. The list is comprehensive and is ranked by degree of difficulty and categorized by type-of-work. While the ranking is somewhat subjective I was say that it is reasonably accurate. Importantly, Jerimy’s work highlights the deficency in training and certification on defense. It begs the question, “Why are we obsessed with becoming hackers?”
