Why should you study Cybersecurity in Lisbon

Lisbon's Rising Tech SceneLisbon's tech and start-up scene is on the rise and its IT industry is expanding rapidly - so much so, that Lisbon has been referred to as the "California of Europe". This makes it a great hub to visit for anyone who is considering branching out into a career in tech or cybersecurity. Couple this with sunny weather, beautiful beaches, and a low cost of living, and it pretty much answers the question, "Why should you study a Cybersecurity Bootcamp in Lisbon?".
Regular Cybersecurity ConferencesWith a rise in start-ups, tech companies, and digital expansion, it comes a sharp increase in the activity around cybersecurity. Over the last couple of years, Lisbon has hosted a multitude of cybersecurity conferences such as the International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence (ICAART), which took place there in February 2021, as well as the European Security Conference (July 2020), and Portugal's annual C-Days Cybersecurity Summit, which was last held in Lisbon in October 2020. The latter event takes place each year. Attending events like these is a great way to make contacts in the field and learn about the latest updates in the cybersecurity industry.
A Growing Number of Start-Ups in LisbonAside from being one of Europe's hottest tech hubs, Lisbon is a city that celebrates creativity and entrepreneurship. This is reflected in the sheer number of start-ups that have been founded or relocated there. Tech start-ups list reasons such as finding great talent to work with, strong interest from international investors, and a booming high-tech scene among the reasons for basing themselves there. Lisbon attracts a lot of people with digital talent, making it a great place to learn about the industry and the types of companies that may require cybersecurity expertise, whether now or in the future.
Low Cost of Living for Students and ProfessionalsLisbon remains one of Europe's more affordable cities and this makes it very attractive for many students and professionals. Inexpensive, delicious food and beer, plus accommodation that is much more affordable than in other cities, make Lisbon a great place to live, study, or spend a summer. Affordability is among the many reasons studying Cybersecurity in Lisbon is a great choice.

What sets Lisbon apart?

Lisbon, “The California of Europe,” stands as one of Europe’s major hubs for finance, media, entertainment, commerce, the arts and international trade. Not only is Lisbon host to a booming tech scene, but also a continually affordable cost of living, sublime weather and beaches, and numerous culinary and natural wonders.
This perfect combination of commerce, culture and comfort has attracted a new wave of digital nomads and tech workers. The city welcomes newcomers with open arms. However, this isn’t at the expense of the local culture, as Lisbon’s traditional foods, arts and historical neighborhoods remain well-established.
