Cyber Security Courses
Why Cyber Security
The Cyber Security industry is experiencing enormous growth with cyber attacks among the biggest threats faced by businesses today.
A significant skills gap has presented Cyber Security professionals with tremendous career opportunities and earning potential.
Strong market demand means professional Cyber Security certifications are currently among the highest-paying tech qualifications around.
Our hands-on training programmes have been keeping professionals ahead of the technology curve for over 15 years.
Cyber attacks are among the biggest threats faced by businesses today with various technologies now almost universally used to collect, store and transmit data.
The theft of sensitive information and intellectual property will cause significant financial and reputational damage to an organisation, regardless of their size or the sector they operate in. The average cost of a cyber security breach is said to be £22,300 and £2,310 for large and small to medium-sized businesses respectively. Tesco Bank was recently fined £16.4m for failing surrounding a cyber attack on its customers, for example.
It is therefore no surprise that the demand for individuals for possessing the skills and experience needed to protect digital assets is currently soaring. But the cyber security talent pool is not yet big enough to keep up with the rate at which attacks are growing, both in terms of frequency and sophistication. It has been predicted that there will be more than 3.5 million unfilled cyber security positions by 2021.
This skills gap means businesses are prepared to pay a premium for IT professionals with cyber security expertise. A 2018 survey found that Certified Ethical Hackers earn upwards of £70,000 per year while Certified Information Systems Security Professionals currently take home an average salary of around £80,000.
With strong demand in the job market, high earning potential and great opportunities for progression, now is the perfect time to get certified in cyber security. Doing so will help to validate your skills and experience for employers, who are desperately seeking qualified professionals.
