This knowledge will set the ground to have a productive and meaningful learning process during the bootcamp. Also, although you will learn these topics remotely before you arrive at your chosen campus, you won’t be far away from the resources of the Ironhack community.

Why should you learn cybersecurity?

Fastest growing area in technology

Not only is it a fast growing area, Cybersecurity has had 0% unemployment for nearly a decade. With plenty of opportunities and competitive compensation, the only thing standing in your way to access an accelerated, future-proof career is to master the subject.

Digital breaches and business vulnerabilities

Advances in technology are the main drive for economic growth but have also led to a higher incidence of cyberattacks. The leading trends such as e-commerce, mobile payments, cloud computing, Big Data and analytics, IoT, AI, machine learning, and social media, all increase cyber risk for users and businesses.

Workforce Gap

As cyber threats continue to grow in sophistication, organizations face a persistent challenge in recruiting skilled cybersecurity professionals capable of protecting their systems against the threat of malicious actors.

Cybersecurity growth due to the global pandemic

Cybersecurity is experiencing a strong growth due to Covid-19. With millions of people forced to spend more time indoors and online, it has created a huge space for cybercriminals to exploit the crisis and the need to invest more in cybersecurity professionals. According to the LearnBonds report, 70% of major companies will increase cybersecurity spending post-coronavirus to face the challenge of the global pandemic.
