I never thought about cyber security as a career path for me.  But after reading about the barrage of cyber attacks globally, I found this course. I recently earned a role as an Information Security Analyst and earning 3x what I thought I could, without a degree!

What is Cyber Security?

The main purpose of cyber security is to protect all organizational assets from both external and internal threats as well as disruptions caused due to natural disasters


Cyber security can be described as the collective methods, technologies, and processes to help protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of computer systems, networks and data, against cyber-attacks or unauthorized access.

 There are several common areas of cybersecurity, including, but not limited to: network security, cloud security, data loss prevention, intrusion detection, identity and access management, endpoint protection, and anti-malware.

As organizational assets are made up of multiple disparate systems, an effective and efficient cyber security posture requires coordinated efforts across all its information systems.
