:tada: NEW: Cybrary Baseline!

In cybersecurity, success is measured not just by knowledge, but by the ability to actively defend and fortify against digital threats. The true value of a cybersecurity professional is reflected in their practical skills and real-world effectiveness in enhancing digital resilience.
