2018 has definitely witnessed a number of notable cyberattacks. To name a few, the time when the city systems of the City of Alaska locked down for over a week after a cyberattack, theft of credit card details of 400,000 customers of British Airways through their official mobile application, compromise of 1.5 million patient records of SingHealth (Singapore’s largest healthcare institution) inclusive of the Prime Minister, and many others. As we all know, this series of unanticipated risks is never-ending, so, it continues in the first quarter of 2019 also.
With the number of registered cyberattacks every year, small to large-scale organizations are looking for experts to protect their systems and networks from cybercriminals. But still the cybersecurity skill gap is significantly large which makes it easy for perpetrators to go ahead with their malicious plan. One of the key factors behind this talent gap is that the organizations look for candidates with accredited credential and hands-on practical knowledge. If you are a cybersecurity aspirant then being an enthusiastic learner is not enough, you need to develop industrially applicable skills too. For this, go for ANSI accredited programs of EC-Council which are in compliance with NICE 2.0 framework making you eligible for bright cybersecurity opportunities over others.
