Cyber Security experts are in high demand

Cyber Security threats do not respect borders. With the dramatic rise in global cyber crime, 
Cyber Security has become one of the fastest growing IT disciplines in the world today. No organization wants to be a victim to cybercrime. The fallout can take years to fix and in some instances, it can be hard to fully recover at all. The growing concern among decision makers at major organizations over cybercrime is therefore boosting the demand for Cyber Security experts worldwide. (ISC)2, being a security certification and industry body, revealed that by 2020, there will be a shortfall of 1.5 million Cyber Security experts.
