Why Cybersecurity Is For You

Cybersecurity professionals use their knowledge of databases, networks, firewalls, and encryptions to prevent system attacks. They help keep information systems operating efficiently by preventing the unauthorized hacking of financial and personal data. This is accomplished by creating barriers around sensitive information, effectively preventing intruders from accessing proprietary property.

Cybersecurity, in its most basic form, is analyzing an organization’s current network, program, and data configurations and then performing a gap assessment between those current configurations and industry best practices. This process allows cybersecurity professionals to neutralize any threats to the organization.

These certifications are valued by employers because they are proof that you have the skills necessary to perform the cybersecurity assessments mentioned above and to protect your organization’s data and information systems.
