Hello anyone and everyone! My name is Marty and I am working on getting into the Information Security field so I have a lot of questions. For now though, I will post just this one to start. I am 45 and a Disabled Veteran starting late, obviously, getting into the field, so what are the most important certifications and professional organizations to join up front? I am doing pretty darn well in my classes, but need to start creating the professional connections that others make later in their education now. Kind of getting ahead of my peers so to speak.
Any and all suggestions are much appreciated!
Software/Hardware used: Microsoft, Spiceworks, very little Linux experience.
