Cybersecurity Training And Jobs

If you like problem solving, have a technical mind and are interested in IT, a career in the fast-growing cyber security field may be for you. With data breaches and headline-grabbing ransomware attacks becoming more common and increasingly sophisticated, cyber security professionals have never been in higher demand.
 
Salaries across the sector are rising and by 2022 there will be 100,000 unfilled cyber security jobs in the UK alone. Right now, cyber security is a brilliant career path, whether you're technical or not.
 
Find out what skills, experience and qualifications you'll need to work in cyber security, a cutting-edge industry that's crying out for skilled professionals.
 
Cyber Analyst Career
Cyber security analysts help to protect an organisation by employing a range of technologies and processes to prevent, detect and manage cyber threats. This can include protection of computers, data, networks and programmes. 
Broadly, you can work in one of the following areas:
• consulting, offering advisory services to clients
• working to protect the security of the organisation you work for.
Job titles vary and may include information security analyst, security analyst, information security consultant, security operations centre (SOC) analyst and cyber intelligence analyst.
 
Graduate Entry into Cyber Security
Because of the relatively young age of the cyber security industry, career paths are not always clear. 
Graduates have two primary routes: specialising their knowledge through a Cyber-Security Masters, or starting in a junior role.
'For most graduates, a junior role with on-the-job experience is often the better option,' says Richard Diston, senior cyber security instructor at Firebrand Training.
 
'Not only will you be learning, but you'll be gaining invaluable experience that is essential for many industry-recognised certifications.'
 
By starting a junior role after graduation, you'll get the opportunity to build your hands-on cyber security expertise sooner. Not only will this help you find work if you decide to move to a new company, but by working on the frontlines you'll meet certification prerequisites faster. 
 
That's not to say taking a cyber security Masters will affect you negatively. Employers are ultimately looking for a balance of practical skills backed up by qualifications.
 
A Masters is a fantastic way to study the wider cyber security landscape - ideal if you're unsure where you'd like to specialise or want a solid foundation of knowledge before you join the job market. .
 
It's worth noting that a degree in computer science is not essential for a job in cyber security. Non-technical professionals often have a range of transferable skills that are essential in cyber security, especially in the realms of management and training.
