“Cybersecurity Threats are much more than a matter of IT,”
IBFS Global Chief Information Security Officer & Board Advisor, Société Générale.
Cybersecurity is a domain that has stayed in the shadows for most of its lifetime. Only a handful of leading organizations have dedicated teams that preserve their privacy and secure their systems. But, there was never a large-scale global adoption of cybersecurity as a profession or even as an IT domain.
Until as recently as 2010, security and privacy of data in organizations was the responsibility of each and every professional working there. Unfortunately, this approach has become outdated in today’s fast-paced world where hackers are years ahead when compared to tech professionals. Let’s understand this better with an infographic:
As evident from the above image, the state of cybersecurity and our digital privacy has been deteriorating in the last couple of years. This begs the question, “Are our digital identities and data safe?“
Like most questions in the IT industry, shifting of technology trends solved most of the questions presented by cybersecurity threats. Companies, organizations, and even influencers have recently started building up their own cybersecurity teams. In fact, ethical and consulting hackers can score jobs that offer salaries up to $106,000 per annum, according to Indeed.com.
Cybersecurity threats are real and will keep getting more complex as hackers learn to adapt to security strategies. This makes cybersecurity one of the most dynamic domains with more learning involved than any other IT sector. Fortunately, there are hundreds, if not thousands of openings in the job market for entry-level professionals who are looking to get into a cybersecurity role. Additionally, there are no solid prerequisites to get into this awesome domain. Although, a beginner-level of networking will be a plus.
