Great question and congrats on your recent accomplishment! Have you had any internships? Experience is an important step to grow to a successful career. Don't get discouraged if your internship or first job isn't the job you want. Remember there are steps in the ladder to reach your goal.


Something you can do to build your degree is to pursue certifications in cybersecurity. A good order would be to get the Security +, CSA+, CEH, and OSCP.


To be white hat, you need to stay ethical as possible. Don't practice hacking on random networks and companies. Set up your own environment. Check out sources like VulnHub. There are plenty of ethical ways to practice.

It is important to know that there two to three types of hackers: 1. Black hat hackers ( these are mostly criminals who are motivated by financial gain on their target), 2. White hat hackers, these are good people whose main role is to protect infrastructure of the company’s that they are employed by or consulting for.

I suspect your question is geared towards white hat hackers and the training for that is you can do different kind of certifications and hands on training in information security. The popular certifications are CEH, CISSP, etc.

"White Hat Hacking" is also known as "ethical hacking" and often involves "penetration testing" of systems. There are many certifications that can help get you on the way to becoming and ethical hacker.
