In a world where data leaks, high-profile breaches, and identity theft have become everyday occurrences, it should be no surprise that cybersecurity is being called the hottest career of the millennium.

Digital technology has changed the face of business, creating complex challenges in information management. Data has become a commodity—stolen, bought and sold by petty criminals, nationstates
and organized crime syndicates alike. And government compliance regulations have added to the burden of already overworked IT teams.

In short, the need for cybersecurity specialists has exploded.

The only problem? A lack of qualified professionals to fit such 21stcentury job descriptions as chief information security officer (CISO), security architect, vulnerability assessor, and cryptanalyst.
