But, before we discuss how to become a Cyber

cyber security is and why is it important?

Cyber security Cyber security is a method used to
protect devices, networks, and data from attacks
by using different tools and technologies. As
many organizations are looking forward to
protecting their systems, networks, and data,
these attacks must be handled by Cyber Security
Professionals like Security Testers, Pen Testers,
Cyber Security Engineers, and other
specialists. The importance of cyber
security There are various reasons why cyber
security is important, but here are a few
relevant reasons. Increased cybercrimes The
rapid advancement of technology, like high-speed
Internet, improved gadgets, and cloud computing,
has resulted in the rise of the number of devices
linked. According to some statistics, the worlds
networked gadgets has numbered 21.1 billion in
2021. This, together with the rise of the dark
web, has provided a fertile ground for
cybercriminals. Nonetheless, cyber security can
help you reduce your risk.

Several cyber-attacks Cyber-attacks can affect
anyone at any time. Malware, phishing,
man-in-the-middle, and drive-by attacks are
examples of these types of attacks. Isnt it
terrifying? You wont believe what crypto-jacking
is. This is where crooks can gain access to your
computer and steal valuables like Bitcoins and
other digital money. They could simply take your
data if they gain access to your computer. If you
want to have a chance against these attacks,
youll require cyber security. Vulnerabilities
in tech industries The fact that everyone on
earth is becoming increasingly more dependent on
information and communication technology implies
that there is a flourishing crime opportunity for
cybercriminals. Many people have become
vulnerable to cyber threats as cloud storage has
improved and social media has grown in
popularity. As a result, cyber security is needed
more than ever before.

Businesses can be affected by viruses Computer
viruses can disperse like wildfire. If you do not
keep them under control, they might cause serious
problems for you and your company. Viruses can
corrupt your files and systems. As a result, its
critical to take cyber security seriously because
it has the potential to protect your computer
systems from infections. Lets jump into our main
topic now. Starting a cyber security career Let
me tell you four simple steps to start your
career in cyber security.

Education Many Cyber Security Professionals have
started their cyber security careers by earning a
degree in information technology, computer
science, or information systems. This is their
first step, and after that, you can get a
post-graduate degree or a masters degree in
cyber security. Whatever career you choose,
education is very important. Lack of education is
one of the primary reasons for unfulfilled jobs
in the cyber security profession. Those with a
cyber security degree have a considerable edge in
such a bad scenario when numerous jobs stay
vacant due to a shortage of skilled personnel.
With an information security degree, not only are
job opportunities abundant, but salaries are also
high due to high demand and shortage of supply.
