Questions About Information Technology and Cyber Security Course Options in Singapore?
What is cybersecurity?
Cyber security is the body of processes, techniques and technologies that protect Information Technology (IT) systems from cyber attacks and data breaches. Such attacks can severely damage a brand’s reputation and compromise the security of customers. By engaging cyber and network security professionals, and conducting industry-recognised procedures, such as vulnerability assessments and scans, penetration testing and ethical hacking – enterprises can safeguard their assets.
Is cyber security a good career?
Yes, the demand for cybersecurity professionals has increased manifold over the past few years. As companies around the world digitalise and information is stored online and sent through networks or servers, cyber security has become integral to the economy. Cyber security is needed in almost every sector, from the financial sector to the transport sector, making it a career that offers several opportunities for those who hold the right certifications.
What qualifications do I need for cyber security?
A specialist diploma, bachelor’s degree, or postgraduate degree in cyber security can equip one with the knowledge and skills to explore a career in this field. As a cyber security professional, you are required to implement and maintain security systems and this means most companies require that you obtain at least a diploma in cyber security. For those keen to learn the basics of cyber security, MDIS offers several IT, network and cyber security courses for beginners, training them in the fundamentals of IT security.
If you wish to advance to higher positions, companies would prefer that candidates have at least a cyber security bachelor's degree.
