As you may know that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!
I would go THM premium for idk 2 or 3 months and do the paths, it's a great way to start. Then check out INE free paths and maybe their certs if you dig this stuff. Then go to HTB for more challenging stuff. I would avoid focusing on something like the Cisco courses since it's really basic and it mostly just covers concepts and theory, not many practical stuff and they focus on Cisco stuff (which is not so relevant at first).
Also read and read and read. I would also try to learn some programming like c++ and then python, just learn the syntax and how to do basic stuff, you'll need to understand some core concepts of programming and OS at least from the surface.
Good books are something like hacking the art of exploitation from no starch press. Also check out their books of cybersec they are basic but pretty good in content. If you wanna get ahead on crypto stuff then I would also focus on some math, specially calculus and linear algebra/ discrete math and number theory. But again, this is not a must. It's something I like imo and gets useful later on in your career.
Good luck man!
In conclusion, let me just add that camDown has a modern UI, that is secure and has the improved features that you need.
