Topic: Essential Skills for Cybersecurity Professionals Today
Abstract: With the threat frontier evolving every couple of years or decades, each aspect of this domain remains a topic of discussion and study. In recent times, the introduction of new technologies, such as cloud computing, Blockchain, IoT, etc., has altered the threat techniques and shifted the security posture of businesses. While the concept of hacking remains the same, the mode has changed with the emergence of newer technologies. Hence, cybersecurity aspirants must understand the state of data and devices in these platforms and how the access or transfer of information takes place in these technologies. While some technologies limit the need for understanding only up to storage and transfer, others might require cybersecurity professionals to understand the underlying framework and programming language. The current webinar aims to guide cybersecurity professionals on the new technological trends in the field and the associated skills needed to secure the digital infrastructure from harm.
- What are some of the prominent technical and non-technical cybersecurity skills (e.g., cloud security, ethical hacking/penetration testing, digital forensics, security management, information governance, security awareness, etc.)?
- What are the associated skill sets that cybersecurity practitioners will benefit from?
- How can relevant skills be understood and recognized in practice?
