It would help if you had some mastery of technical and non-technical skills to excel in this field. To be a cyber security expert, truth be told, you must be a jack of all trades. It would be best to have a good grasp of networking, system administration, command-line coding, forensics, reverse engineering, cyber operations, audit and compliance and digital security.
