I need to choose a profession and college ASAP, as I am a senior in high school and it's that time of year. I always wanted to be a Software Engineer, but after some time of thinking, I decided I don't see myself doing that. Instead, I would like to follow career in what I'm most passionate about - Computer Security.
I've been searching the interwebs for jobs in the area, and it seems like they are all so similar, but have different names. For example, a couple job titles I came across were Computer Systems Security Analyst and IT Security Analyst along with a couple others, but they all seem to have the same job description.
I was hoping you experienced peoples could please help me out by naming some job titles in area and what their basic day looks like.
Also, what would I be taking in college? What courses should I be taking? What should I be looking for in a college?
And last but not least, what are some good colleges for computer security. I'm also thinking about minoring in business :-).
I've been learning about computer security/ethical hacking for a couple years now, and I really do enjoy it. I hope you guys/gals could help me out :-).
