Cyber attacks are the fastest growing crime in the world, and they continue to grow in size and sophistication. Companies like Facebook, Panera Bread, Under Armour and Uber made headlines after having customer information stolen. With each breach, administrative fears and the demand for cybersecurity certifications increase.

These fears are not unfounded. Several researches show that over 60 %  in the U.S. would likely halt any interaction with a business that’s officially been hacked.

As a company, you might find yourself scrambling to hire top cybersecurity talent or equip your IT team with cybersecurity certifications. As an IT professional, the demand for cybersecurity skills presents a huge opportunity to boost your résumé, stand out among candidates and increase your earning potential.

According to a  CyberSeek report, the number of cybersecurity job openings in the U.S. stands at almost 302,000, with nearly 769,000 cybersecurity professionals employed in today’s workforce. Projections continue to be robust further out: CSO  expects that number to hit 500,000 by 2021, with more than 3 million cybersecurity jobs open for the rest of the world that same year.

Our Certified Cybersecurity Risk Management Professional encompasses the following other relevant certifications:

  • Certified Ethical Hacker
  • Certified Information Security Manager
  • CompTIA Security+
  • CISSP: Certified Information Systems Security Professional
  • GSEC: SANS GLAC Security Essentials

To stop a hacker, you must be able to think like one. It’s an interesting balance between toeing the line of moral actions and processing the malicious thoughts the average cybercriminal would have. This kind of mentality isn’t easy to come by, which is why we offer the CCSP.

The certification covers  strategies, frameworks, methodologies, and tools to manage cybersecurity risks, identify various types of common threats, design and operate secure computing and networking environments, assess and audit the organization’s security, collect, and analyze cybersecurity intelligence, and handle incidents as they occur. The certification also covers closely related information assurance topics such as auditing and forensics to provide a sound basis for a comprehensive approach to security aimed toward those on the front lines of defense.
