Is it possible to go for the security specialty Exam directly without Experience ?

Hello Cloud Guru Team,

I got CSAA Certification last week & i am planning to go for Security specialty exam, I have no experience in the Cloud/IT  but i learned a lot during my preparation to the Solution architect exam.

Do you advise me to take another certificate before the Security like Sysops or Developer which can help me more by passing the security by providing more knowledge on some topics  or i can go directly for studying the Security specialty .

You can go straight to Security Specialty! But just be aware that the Speciality exams are more difficult than the Associates…

The official recommended knowledge is as below: 

Recommended Knowledge

At least two years of hands-on experience securing AWS workloads

Security controls for workloads on AWS

A minimum of five years of IT security experience designing and implementing security solutions
