Top Cybersecurity Pros Embrace Professional Development

Employment opportunities in the field of cybersecurity are on the rise worldwide. However, the lack of qualified staff calls for investment in the professional development of those interested in this unique but lucrative career path. The best way to approach professional development in cybersecurity is through diversity in educational background and job experience. Employers seek employees who do not have traditional backgrounds in information technology (IT) and are willing to learn the necessary technical skills and prepare for careers in cybersecurity. Critical thinking, analytical thinking, the ability to work independently or in a team, and problem-solving are some non-technical skills that employers are seeking in candidates for cybersecurity positions. However, companies need reassurance that the candidate they intend to hire will be successful and worth the investment. To resolve this concern, (ISC)2 has developed a certification for novices in cybersecurity called (ISC)2 Certified in Cybersecurity. About 10,000 people globally have signed up, and minority organizations in the US are interested in adopting it to help build their client base. The program is top-rated in the UK as well.
