A career in Information Security: Have you got what it takes?June 12th, 2013 by Melanie Watson
According to a Eurostat report, unemployment throughout Europe has reached another record high. 19.38 million people were out of work this April, where both Greece and Spain had unemployment rates of over 25%.
However, jobs in information security have seen some of the highest growth rates in the past ten years, which is not surprising considering the increasing amount of security threats and consequently stricter regulations facing organisations. A job in information security looks after an organisation’s most valuable assets: its information. Protection from malware, hackers, unhappy employees and natural disasters requires fine skills to ensure the integrity of the information.
So we’re asking: have you got what it takes for a career in information security?
