A panel discussion from our Education Sponsor, AcademyXi
According to IBM, there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created each day. With that, 90% of all data that currently exists has only been created in the last two years!
As such, the need for data security has surged at an exponential rate. Both businesses and governments are pouring resources into cybersecurity — the techniques of how we can keep our data safer and away from the wrong hands.
What is cybersecurity, what opportunities exist in this field?
At our panel, our expert cybersecurity panelists will explore:
• What are the different roles available in cybersecurity?
• Why we need a breadth of roles in the field?
• Why all roles in cybersecurity are not technical
• How can you transition into a career in cybersecurity
