Cyber Security Careers
Cyber vulnerabilities are among the greatest global risks according to a World Economic Forum study. Across the globe and in Ireland, business and people are being attacked by hackers with malicious intent on a daily basis. Their motives vary; from cybercrime to espionage, from cyberterrorism to boredom, but bad actors have one thing in common — they all intend to break into digital systems and cause harm.
The risk is made worse by a shortage of people working in cyber security. This leaves businesses at increased risk of attack as they do not have the people with the right knowledge to protect their systems and prevent attacks.
