CYBERUK 2019 Recap: IT Security Training in High Demand

Cybersecurity continues to be a growing global concern. Some reports estimate that cybercrimes will cost $6 trillion a year by 2021. The good news is more organizations recognize this threat and the importance of being prepared.

We heard over and over at CYBERUK 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland about the need for more training around keeping networks and data safe from cyber attacks. CYBERUK is the UK Government’s premier cybersecurity event — and annually draws more than 2,000 members of the UK’s cybersecurity community.

Earning certifications is one of the most effective ways to develop InfoSec skills. Certifications are designed to test and validate candidates’ knowledge of the latest cybersecurity threats, how to prevent attacks, and how to properly respond to potential incidents. Organizations who have well-trained IT teams are better prepared to protect their networks and data from cyber threats.

Well-known and trusted vendors such as Cisco, (ISC)2, Check Point, and Palo Alto offer many in-demand InfoSec certifications, including:

If you’re new to IT, earning a vendor neutral certification such as CompTIA Security+ is highly recommended. Vendor-neutral certifications cover concepts and practices that can be universally applied, regardless of vendor or technology. CompTIA Security+ is an ideal springboard for vendor-specific InfoSec certifications like the ones we previously listed.
