    According to CompTIA, the most popular IT certifications for 2021 aren't what I'd have expected to see, although it was refreshing to see they'd not placed themselves at the top. Cyber security came out on top, followed by ITIL, Cisco, CompTIA, Citrix and AWS. What do you think? Do you agree? Do you have any of these?

    Yeah possibly not the most scientific study, or has MS certification declined to that sort of level I wonder? VMware also not on there, or Google
