Why Cyber Security?

Reddit, Yahoo!, Equifax, Facebook. What these companies have in common in 2017 is the fact that they have suffered from data breaches, whether directly or indirectly. Even organisations such as Uber, SingHealth, Singapore Airlines, and even Ministry of Health’s HIV leak are some examples of data breaches that hits close to home.

In addition, cybersecurity is facing a global shortage of such professionals to meet the security needs of numerous industries as they digitalise and go online.

The cyber-war is coming. Join the Cyber Security industry with our Intro To Cyber Security course that gives you the fundamentals to jumpstart your career.
