Choosing the right cyber security qualification

With so many cyber security qualifications to choose from, it’s hard to decide which one is most appropriate for your current job or career plan.

Technical and managerial skills are highly sought after in the cyber security industry, so it’s always a good idea to get professional training and qualifications. Most people get qualifications to become more valuable in their current company or to land a new job.

The latter reason is probably why management is often reluctant to support employees who want to enrol on training programmes. However, organisations that don’t help staff gain new skills will be forced to hire new people whenever they need to fill senior positions. With the cyber security skills gap widening each year, expert staff are in increasingly high demand. Organisations that encourage employees to gain qualifications will be able to grow from within, and low staff turnover and the promise of promotions will keep your employees happy.

Making your choice

Employers will always be impressed by cyber security qualifications, but that doesn’t mean you should enrol on the first training course you come across. Becoming qualified takes a lot of time and effort, so you should research your options.
