What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity commonly refers to the tools and techniques used to protect technology devices, the data they contain, and the functions they perform from people who want to steal, damage or misuse them. This includes normal features of modern life that you deal with every day, like the passwords that protect your phone, your computer and your various online accounts, as well as the practices and defenses to keep everything safe.

 

High demand for Cybersecurity Professionals

Cybercrime has become an everyday occurrence, with global corporations, governments, energy providers, and even nonprofits falling victim to digital criminals stealing intellectual capital, endangering lives by breaching utilities or holding systems ransom. As these attacks increase in both complexity and frequency, organizations are eagerly searching for cybersecurity professionals to help defend them. 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the profession of information security analyst is expected to grow with 33% from 2020 to 2030, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. Currently, there are 3.5 million security jobs unfilled worldwide.
