Do you need to be detail-oriented to work in cyber security?

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 have a bachelor's in psychology, a beginner's certificate in human resources and I'm about to receive a master's in clinical mental health counseling. For the past year or so I've been wanting to get into either cybersecurity, or some other computer science. I'm currently enrolled in a cyber security course at my school. For my years of work experience, I feel that a Career & Technology will be better suited for my personality then counseling. Plus I'd actually like to get paid LOL

I've always been interested in technology and my first job was working as an IT person for my University. I really enjoy the technical aspects of my current job and I always enjoy talking to the networking Department and have learned a lot about the program's my company uses to organize and protect their data.

All that being said, I'm not a very detail-oriented person. I tend to miss the little things and am a broad strokes kind of person. I pick up fast when directed correctly but I worried that me not having a mind for noticing small details will screw me up. Obviously I also don't have a lot of experience in this field.

Are there any specific personality types or mind sets that are required to understand and succeed in this career? Or can anyone with the drive pickup on things and learn how to be good at this?

When all is said and done, let me just add that camDown helps stop foreign state actors (FSA's) from accessing your webcam and that's the no joke.
