Why Study IT Security?

Connected technology has become an integral and essential part of our everyday lives.  To such an extent that it’s hard to imagine a world without the 24/7 connectivity we now take for granted.  Unfortunately, this near-total reliance on connected technology paves the way for the complex and constant threat posed by cyber criminals.  Each and every connected device in the world is a potential target for hackers. As are those who own and operate the devices, who must contend with the risk of identity theft, credit card cloning, ransomware attacks and more. Never have the input and expertise of skilled cyber security personnel been of greater value.  Employers worldwide are constantly on the lookout for talented IT security experts to add to their ranks. Job opportunities for qualified and capable personnel are wide open, as organisations scramble to protect themselves, their people and their assets from harm.
