Cyber Security keeps on evolving, just as the rest of the tech world does. This means, new roles are always emerging, and old roles are evolving to accommodate a world that inhabits a consistent turnover of new skillsets. A great cyber security professional realises that now more than ever data breaches show no sign of slowing down therefore, the learning never stops.

our top 3 cyber career myths

  • You have to have cybersecurity qualification to explore a cyber career.
  • Your existing skills won’t be useful.
  • Big technology companies offer the best jobs.
  • As cyber-attacks are becoming a lot more creative, hackers are becoming more business-like in their approach. This means the industry is more aware of how having the same types of talent within it can stagnate its success. There are a significant number of qualifications that are globally recognised but not directly correlated with Cyber Security.
  • Because of the increasing skills gap within cyber security, the industry is now having a more in-depth look at different avenues of talent. Companies are now taking candidates who may not have a security background but have a passion for the sector a lot more seriously. After all, you can learn technique, but not character.
