WHY LEARN CYBERSECURITY?

FASTES GROWING AREA IN TECHNOLOGY

Cybersecurity is the fastest growing market in the technology field with 30x growth over the last decade. Not only is it a hot topic, but the industry has had 0% unemployment for nearly a decade. With plentiful opportunities and competitive compensation, the only thing standing between you and a lucrative, future-oriented career is your skill sets.

DIGITAL BRANCHES AND BUSSINES VULNERABILITIES

While advances in technology are among the main drivers of economic growth, they have also led to a higher incidence of cyberattacks. The leading trends such as e-commerce, mobile payments, cloud computing, Big Data and analytics, IoT, AI, machine learning, and social media all increase cyber risks for businesses and other users.

WORKFORCE GAP

As cyber threats continue to grow in sophistication, businesses, government agencies and other organizations face the persistent challenge of finding and recruiting skilled cybersecurity professionals capable of protecting their systems against the threats of malicious actors.

CYBERSECURITY GROWTH DUE TO THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC

The need for Cybersecurity providers has grown exponentially due to Covid-19. With millions of people forced to spend more time indoors and online, a huge space has been created for cybercriminals to exploit the crisis resulting in an even greater need for cybersecurity professionals. According to the LearnBonds report, 70% of major companies will increase cybersecurity spending post-coronavirus to deal with the increased challenges and unexpected consequences of the global pandemic.
