I found a golden gem, a ton of courses with FREE certifications.

๐Ÿ”ต Vulnerability Management Learning Path:

ALL of these courses include hands-on lab training and certifications.


This field of cyber security is so different from any other field because you literally have the ability to make your own path and self train. There is no blueprint to be successful in this career. All you have to do is use the resources that are in front of you. Please pass this around the internet for others that are struggling.
