Become a Cybersecurity Professional

The cybersecurity job market is hot. With increasing connectivity among smart devices and an exponential growth in data, sensitive personal data are now stored online by shops, government agencies, financial institutions, and even healthcare facilities. Greater cybersecurity is needed to protect it and ward off breaches. According to one estimate, the global cybersecurity market is projected to grow 86 percent from around $145 billion in 2018 to $270 billion by 2026. Employment of professions related to this evolution are expected to grow at a robust pace over the next decade from 2019 to 2029.
