Cyber Security

So what is cyber security: Cyber security is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cyber security and physical security.

What does cyber security include: Cyber security includes controlling physical access to the hardware, as well as protecting against harm that may come via network access, data and code injection.

Why you should choose a career in cyber security.

There has never been a better time to work in cyber security. A survey of more than 19,000 cyber security professionals has revealed that the world is expected to face a shortfall of 1.8 million cyber security workers by 2022. Not only are there plenty of jobs on offer but salaries are also on the rise.

The survey, conducted by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education and sponsored by ISC, also found that 47% of respondents were struggling to find qualified personnel. In the UK, 46% of companies said the shortfall of cyber security professionals is having a significant impact on their customers and 45% said it’s causing more cyber security breaches.

As a result, 46% plan to expand their cyber security workforce by at least 16%, but the skills shortage continues to prevent them from doing so. This presents a great opportunity for those looking to further their career in the cyber security field, as Ryan Baker, cyber security recruitment specialist at Net-workers, explains:
