    If you specifically want a "network security" job, you'll need to know something about networking then. I would suggest both the CCNA and Security+ (and higher certs) will get your mind and career pointed in the direction you want to go. The Security+ and the CCNA are two very different certifications, so you can get them in any order.

    Thank you JDMurray

    That really helps to make a decision, I will get CCNA cert, then work on Security+.
    I know that experience is important in IT security job, degree in cyber security will at-least get me a entry level IT security job?
