Basic knowledge of IT is required to work in the field of information security. The good news is that you don't have to have a specialized education to do this. Studying at a university in a specialty does not guarantee that a person will immediately be able to work in a profession - there is too little practice.
According to Rosstat, only 37 percent of Russian graduates work in their specialty. Therefore, for a start, ordinary technical education and specialized narrow-profile training in an IT school are enough.
You can get basic knowledge in an IT school in 6-12 months, studying without prejudice to your main job. An advanced course with a narrow specialization will take another 6-8 months. The average cost of a basic course on the market is from 180,000 rubles for 12 months. Advanced - from 100,000 rubles for 8 months. Those. 10-18 thousand rubles a month.
