Cybersecurity risks and threats are ever-present in our world today. The infrastructure of networks and the Internet are increasingly vulnerable to a wide variety of both physical and cyber-attacks. Sophisticated cyber criminals, as well as nations, exploit these vulnerabilities to steal information and money.
Our networks are particularly difficult to secure for several reasons:
- Networks are increasingly integrated and complex.
- Networks are connected to physical devices.
- Cyber criminals can access networks from anywhere in the world.
In today’s workforce, there is a shortage of people trained in the field of cybersecurity. Here are just a few of the specialties you might consider for your career:
- Cybersecurity Specialist
- Cybersecurity Forensic Expert
- Information Security Expert
- Ethical Hacker
All of these roles can be part of your work in the exciting, ever-changing, high-demand field of cybersecurity. Students who complete the Cybersecurity Essentials course are prepared to continue their education in more advanced security courses.
