First, know that there are many sub-specialties in computer security. You can be an expert in keeping systems from being hacked, or in creating unhackable software. You can be an expert in finding security problems in software, or in networks. You can be an expert in viruses, or policies, or cryptography. There are many, many opportunities for many different skill sets. You don’t have to be a coder to be a security expert.

With more than 80% of companies in the US being hacked, the rest of the world can’t be far off. As our digital reliance grows, it’s easy to see how this growing epidemic creates a need for cyber security professionals.

It’s impossible to overlook the importance of cyber security in today’s digital world. Too much of our lives and information are encoded for us not to stand up to cybercrime. Whether you’re excited by all the jobs available in information security or motivated by sheer industry growth and the potential for advancement, take a look at the opportunities awaiting you.
