The growing opportunities in the world of cyber security

The job market is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace - where roles currently commonplace are set to be overrun by the new ‘jobs of the future’.

One obvious, but vital career path is in cyber security. The term describes the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorised access – and candidates with a skillset in this field are now in increasing demand.

Cybersecurity roles

Current job titles in this sector include Software Security Engineer, Analyst, Administrator, Specialist or Consultant, all of whom have a broad remit to safeguard information security within an organisation against criminal attack or loss. It’s inevitable, however, that as the demands of technology evolve, new job titles are likely to emerge which reflect not only their increasing prominence within an organisation, but also the nature of the tasks they fulfill.

How to start a cyber security career

While it’s impossible to make your CV future-proof, if you’re considering a career in cyber security, it’s important that you’re ahead of the curve when it comes to core skillset. If you can see yourself fulfilling the role of Cyber Security Architect or as a Systems Integrator, now is the time to consider investing in training that will broaden your capabilities and make you stand out from the crowd.

In recent years, technology has advanced at a rapid rate, and shows no signs of slowing down. It’s safe to say that the rise in cyber security roles is only set to continue, and it’s vital that you, as the talent, will be ready and waiting to fill them.
