Information Security News

Hi to all,

I believe that Information Security is a hot topic and concerns about this will only increase as IT constantly expands and evolves. Over the years, there have been many discussions and articles published surrounding the implementation of information security especially in the IT industry. All areas have been covered including the end goal which is to prevent unauthorised access and to keep data secure but this is a constant battle.

According to the Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report, more than one million positions for information security professionals remain unfilled around the world which shows that there is a high demand for this area. Even GCHQ have opened up applications for cyber summer school to try and reduce the imminent threat of cybercrime and to look for potential recruits who have coding skills in at least one of the following: Perl, Python, JavaScript and C.

Looking and how important Information Security is to businesses and organisations, it is safe to say that it could be perceived as a make or break for lots of businesses especially start-ups. In this day and age, if data was to be unsecure, customers would be lost and businesses would close which is why so many businesses heavily invest in Information Security as it is one of the key parts of their strategic plan for overall success.
