Cybersecurity is a very vast field that includes multiple job roles that are connected to information security, IT security, network security, data security and much more. Some roles will require a hybrid of these areas to look after, and some are more specific depending on the organizations’ needs. Salaries are mostly on the higher end when it comes to overall information security career path.
Information security and cyber security professionals are becoming more in-demand as customers and end-users become increasingly tech savvy. The number of professionals with a global demand in information security is around 8 million and we’re short by nearly 40% of that number. Which means, for at least five to ten years to come, cybersecurity professionals are going to remain in hefty demand. Most cyber security positions require a bachelor’s degree and about 30% require a certification. Many employers now accept proof of graduating from a cyber security bootcamp instead of a degree but still require a certification. Following are a few job roles you may expect to get in once you graduate as a cybersecurity professional.

Cybersecurity Skill Set
Cybersecurity skills begin with strengthening the security fundamentals of hardware and operating system, but it is equally critical to have a deep level understanding of networking and overall security fundamentals. Python programming language is also one of the most desired skill set for cybersecurity professionals, not to mention the ethical hacking and penetration testing abilities. Our partner universities offer the following certification preparation in their bootcamps:
How to Become a Cybersecurity Expert
Like in every other field, a bachelor’s degree will provide an edge to the graduates in the field of cybersecurity. However, due to the rapidly changing dynamics of information security, only a bachelor’s degree is not enough for professionals to cope up with the ever-evolving threat landscape. Today, some of the major IT vendors are providing recognized certifications to validate the skills of candidates, and even without a degree, short-term but rigorous bootcamps can prepare students and professionals for these certification exams, passing which can get them reputable, high paying jobs in the market. This means, that even if one does not have a four-year degree, these certifications can be enough proof of their abilities and achievement in professional education in the field of cybersecurity. Our bootcamps will prepare candidates with theoretical knowledge, practical skills and real world problem solving exposure to prepare them for the latest jobs and certification exam.
