Hi guys, I recently shifted my career towards cyber security/infosec, and I am very interested in what kind of computer/programming language would look good in my resume or relate to my fields of study. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
If you are going deep dive into Infosec, malware analysis, code auditing and such fun, then you'd likely want a much stronger grounding in computer science and a grasp of a few languages including C, Java and assembler (down to the hex for opcodes). But for that, Python is still a good starting point.
+2 for Powershell (powershell has recently made a strong push in the security industry)
Familiarity of C, Java, PHP, Ruby is good too.
There is no such thing as one language for security. You have to be familiar with many and be very good in others. My "others" are powershell and Python. I really want to be proficient in those two languages. The others I want to be familiar with, I don't need to be an expert in the others.

lots of books & videos. do them all, infinite use in your future career
