Course Overview
The field of Cybersecurity is a fast-growing area, with many job opportunities becoming available increasingly frequently. As such, this is a high-priority area for many organisations and companies.

Strong future growth is predicted in this field too, as people and organisations become more and more connected and dependent on these connections for all aspects of their digital lives.

As all of this increases, so does the risk from threats and cybercriminals, increasing the demand for Cybersecurity professionals.

This course combines the Cisco Cybersecurity Introduction and the Cisco Cybersecurity Essentials courses into one.

As Cisco say – “In the age of the Internet of Everything (IoE), the networked connections of people, processes, data, and things create a greater need for a robust security infrastructure. The exponential growth of networked connections leaves data more vulnerable to attacks, creating a growing need for cybersecurity experts.”

The course is a mixture of theoretical and practical skills, which are developed by the tutor in conjunction with industry standard software and Cisco materials.

The first part of the course covers trends in cybersecurity and career opportunities.

Modules covered –
● The Need for Cybersecurity
