Should I learn to code for my InfoSec career?

Should I learn to code for my InfoSec career? | Security Engineer Interview Questions

In this video Abhay looks at a fundamental question that a lot of us getting into #InfoSec, faces. "Should I learn to code in my InfoSec career?"

While it sounds very simple, this question has several nuances. A lot of it depends on the type of career in InfoSec you're looking at. You may be looking at a career in #GRC or InfoSec Compliance and Assurance.

Or you may be looking at a career in Security Engineering, SecOps, or learn DevSecOps.

Or you might be someone with an offensive bent of mind, focusing on Offensive Security like Pentesting and Red-Teaming

Or you may even be looking at becoming a Security Researcher.

Whether you need to code largely depends on many of these aspects and variables and Abhay unpacks all this and more in this Op-Ed style vide. Enjoy!
