Cyber Security courses
October is Cyber Security Awareness month, a month dedicated to helping employees and customers stay safe online.
So why is cyber security so important? Well, in the last 12 months alone, 39% of businesses identified a cyber attack*, a number that’s only expected to grow as cyber criminals develop new ways to hack data. This means employers are putting cyber security at the top of their priorities.
By gaining a qualification in this fast growing sector, you could open yourself up to around 100,000 unfilled cyber security roles in the UK alone. In other words, it’s time to learn to fight crime (online).
