Fast-Track Your Cyber Security Career
Fast-Track Your Cyber Security Career
Our cyber security training package is the perfect step up the IT career ladder
The hype around cyber security is real! It seems like everyone in the IT world wants to shift to a career in cyber security and there are reasons for this shift. With the world turning more and more to a reliance on IT systems and businesses migrating to web-based applications, the threat of data breaches and system compromises is real. Recent surveys have estimated that the total security threat to online IT systems rises by 20% each year and in some areas this percentage is even higher. The attacks on IT systems in the UK alone are said to double on a yearly basis.
Due to this fact, the need for experienced IT security professionals is in a state of ever-increasing demand. IT security professionals are now taking home salaries of between £60,000 and £100,000 per annum. These salaries also seem to be growing exponentially over and above other roles in the IT sector. This means that as an IT security professional you will always be in demand!
Each of the courses in this study package is geared towards furthering your IT skills; from the fundamentals of IT to more complex roles such as IT cyber security.
