HI Nate,

Listening to what your mentioned it sounds like you have a big heart :) and the care for people and animals is important to you.
Dept of Homeland Security in your city has an array of opportunities including certifications for someone like yourself. Check it out. https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/careers/special-hiring-programs

Also no need to dive in hardcore, take your time and see what you like and what you don't. Visit your local community colleges website and research a certification in Department of Homeland Security. Contact the college, they're their to assist you. Some adults didn't know what we wanted English Majors, Music majors but somehow stumbled into Security and who knew it had so many area's of expertise. You find a passion in Security or whatever field of choice. You run with it and don't look back. Remember its not work when you enjoy what you do.

Good Luck,
Monique Clarke

Sona’s Answer

I would first figure out which aspect of security you want to work on, get a degree in computer science with a focus on cyber security if you want to go down that path. If not, first understand the domain before you try to secure it. You need to know how things work, and how to break them before you can protect it. So pick a space you want to secure, learn about it, master it, build it, break it and then find ways to protect it. A period of 6 years, a 4 year degree in your area of interest and 2 years on a security specialization and then lifelong refreshes on the relevances threats and certifications combined with hands-on work and being in your domain. Hope this helps!

GABRIEL’s Answer

Hi- I would encourage you to obtain a 4 year college degree. With that as a foundation, you can pursue many careers in security or elsewhere. If your interest is in security, I would look into cyber security as that seems to be the growing field.
