I love cybersecurity. Linux is amazing, programming is enthralling, and I have not found much else in my life I enjoy, as well as, (well I suppose used to) believe I could make a career out of. While researching the best programming languages for cybsersecurity I came across some advice on Quora that said cybsecurity professionals should know basically every language.
Even more than that though. Evidently I was a bit indignant but it makes sense. To really be a competent cybsersecurity professional you have to know assembly, TCP/IP, a lot of other programming languages, the ins and outs of kali, and more. This simply seems unattainable. How could anyone understand this much about computers? Even the BA IT with a cybersecurity option at my college does not cover this much.
So, my question is a cybersecurity career rational for me? I'm still (a sophomore) studying basic/intermediate C++ with a absolute dearth of knowledge in Linux. I'm like a peon compared to other programmers on Github/StackExchange. I know everyone says go in the direction of your dreams but what if my dream is just not attainable? What if I just realized my passion too late? I've set myself up (with anthro, phil, and english) for a Policy/English/Business degree. Would I better off just going in that direction? I apologize if this question is too specific to me, if that's the case please just downvote and move on. I'm already down, I don't need anyone being superior or patronizing. No not thank you.
