Great that you are pursuing a Certification. Maybe it would be possible to check with your College or School if there are any opportunities to support them in this field. Can work in between classes during your day.
Another option is to check about internships at local area Companies. Most corporations have a Security or Cybersecurity department where they may have opportunities for students to gain on the job experience applying what is being learning from your students. Can look on line and apply.
Wish you the best of luck!
In addition to looking for paid work, also consider free internships (some of them pay). Reach out to everyone you know connected to Cyber Security (Networking is key!) and see if they have opportunities for you to help them and learn while getting your certification. Also, subscribe to as many industry leading cyber security related magazines, web sites and forums as you can and read, read, read. Formal education via certifications are a great foundation, but you need to live and breathe everything about this quickly evolving world. Even earlier in your education, you must train yourself to think like an expert and speak to the many aspects of the field. Never stop learning!
Then see what information you can gain in terms of the competitive advantage, customer profiles and business models the selected companies are employing.
Better yet, the best way to learn about starting a business is to work for a small "hot" company in the market space you have chosen. In this way, you will learn the practical application of the knowledge, skills and certification you have achieved. In addition, you will garner knowledge in terms of business models that make sense to you.
Also, you will substantially improve your networking of successful men and women, who like you, want to split off and start their own business.
